If you plan on hunting big game in Utah this fall, you’d better start thinking about applying.

Applications to hunt most species, including mule deer, are due no later than 11 p.m. on March 1.

The best way to apply is to go to wildlife.utah.gov/biggame. The webpage offers all kinds of information that should help hunters decide which permits they might want. These include maps, drawing odds from 2017, and the success hunters found last year on units throughout the state.

“The page is a great resource that will help you narrow down which hunts you want to apply for,” said Lindy Varney, the wildlife licensing coordinator for the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources. “I hope you’ll submit your application no later than March 1.”

Hunters who have questions on how to apply for the hunts should call 1-800-221-0659.
