Application Period Approaches To Hunt Big Game

by | Mar 15, 2023 | News | 0 comments

The application period for hunting big game opens this month. This has been a change from previous years which opened big game hunt applications in January. Moving forward it will stay with March and April so hunters are able to see the proposed permit numbers before applying for the hunts. “We don’t have the data from the winter big game captures, the previous fall hunt harvest rates, and other big game surveys until March,”  DWR Wildlife Licensing Coordinator Lindy Varney says. “After we receive that data, we put together the permit recommendations for the upcoming fall big game hunting seasons. After receiving requests from the public, the DWR approved the shift in application dates from January to March so that hunters will have information about the proposed permit numbers prior to applying. Hunters can access the proposed permit numbers for each hunt unit beginning in April.” This information will be available at and final permit numbers will be approved by the Utah Wildlife Board on May 4th.
