Though Utah’s big game hunts don’t occur until the fall, hunters need to start planning ahead now if they hope to get a permit.
Applications for the fall big game seasons will be accepted by the Division of Wildlife Resources starting Thursday. Hunters have until 11 p.m. on March 1 to be included in the draw.
Applications will be accepted for every big game hunt except the general-season bull elk. Those permits will go on sale on a first-come, first-served basis starting July 17.
