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.
Big game for Tooele
3AA North’s key football game Friday is Tooele at Ben Lomond. Ben Lomond’s hope for the playoffs stay alive only if the Scots win and force a likely three-way logjam with the Buffaloes and Uintah for the final berth. Tooele is battling for its first playoff appearance since 2006. 3AA South’s most important contest has Cedar at Payson. The Lions must prevail to create a likely three-way tie-up with the Redmen and Hurricane for the last playoff spot. In 3A North, a Carbon loss at Emery drops the Dinos from the postseason and then Union is out, too, if the Utes don’t defeat Grantsville. In 3A South, the loser of North Sanpete at Delta is out of the playoffs.
Utah (4-3, 1-3 Pac-12) plays USC (4-3, 1-2 Pac-12) in Los Angeles on Saturday. Kickoff is at 2 p.m. in the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. The game will be televised on the Pac-12 Networks. The Utes are off to a 1-3 Pac-12 start this year after 0-4 beginnings in their first two seasons. Utah’s win was against then No. 5 Stanford on Oct. 12 in Salt Lake City. Utah is 0-1 in Pac-12 road games, losing at Arizona last week.
BYU returns to Provo for its final Friday night game of the season vs. Boise State at 6 p.m. MDT.
