Big game applications
Hunters can apply for next year’s most prized Utah big game hunting permits — 2014 sportsman permits — starting Tuesday, Oct. 29. One sportsman permit is offered for each of the following species: Desert bighorn ram, Rocky Mountain bighorn ram, buck deer, buck pronghorn, bull elk, bull moose, hunter’s choice bison and hunter’s choice Rocky Mountain goat. Sportsman permits are also offered for three species that are not big game: black bear, cougar and wild turkey. If you draw a sportsman permit, the dates you can hunt vary. But in most cases, the dates are longer than the regular season dates. You can also hunt on almost any unit in Utah that’s open to hunting the species you drew a permit for. Judi Tutorow, licensing coordinator for the Division of Wildlife Resources, says sportsman permits are highly prized items. Hunters can apply online for a sportsman permit at the Utah Division of Wildlife website. Applications must be submitted no later than 11 p.m. on Nov. 19. Draw results will be posted by Nov. 27. Those who draw a permit will receive a confirmation letter in the mail. Call the DWR’s Salt Lake City office for more information 801-538-4700.

After two rushing plays, Hill hit Ridley again for an 11-yard touchdown to put BYU up 47-46 with 1:08 left in the fourth quarter. The blue Cougars tried a two-point conversion, but were stopped short of the goal line. Alani Fua sealed the win with an interception in his second straight game. Hill ran for a first down to run the clock out to preserve the win.

Utah State football
Senior running back Joey DeMartino rushed for a career-high 144 yards and scored four touchdowns, and the Aggie defense held the nation’s second-ranked rushing offense to less than half of its season average, in Utah State’s 45-10 Mountain West road win at New Mexico Saturday night. Utah State evens its record at 4-4 with the win and improves to 3-1 in MW play, while New Mexico falls to 2-5 on the season and 0-3 in the league with the loss.
