Deer Open Houses in Southeastern Utah


DWR Press Release

The Division of Wildlife Resources is seeking public input about deer management in southeastern Utah.

Brent Stettler, regional conservation outreach manager for the DWR, said plans that guide the management of deer in southeastern Utah will expire soon. Before biologists revise the plans, they want to hear from you.

“Whether you hunt deer or not, almost everyone has a stake in how deer and other wildlife are managed,” Stettler explained. “If you have comments, ideas or proposals for managing deer in southeastern Utah, DWR biologists want to hear from you.”

The DWR will offer an open house in each county in southeastern Utah. Stettler said all of the open houses will be informal and unstructured. “We want to give you a chance to have a face-to-face conversation with the people who manage the deer herd closest to your home,” he said. “You can come at any time and leave whenever you want.”

As they revise the deer plans, biologists will consider the ideas and proposals you share. If you can’t attend one of the open houses, you can still provide your comments by emailing them to Guy Wallace, regional wildlife manager, at

All of the open houses will run from 6:30 p.m. until 8 p.m. They will be held on the following dates and at the following locations:

Date Location
July 28 Grand Center in Moab at 182 N. 500 W.
July 29 Monticello Community Center at 549 S. Main
Aug. 11 DWR office in Price at 319 N. Carbonville Road
Aug. 12 Emery County courthouse at 75 E. Main in Castle Dale

Light refreshments will be served. “You’re cordially invited to stop by and share your thoughts,” Stettler said. For more information, call Stettler at (435) 613-3707.
