Archery deer and pronghorn hunting may be allowed on some of Utah’s waterfowl management areas in 2014. Eight different areas in Utah may also receive transplanted mule deer.
Young hunters without their own hunting permit might be allowed to use their parent’s or grandparent’s permit to take a big game animal in 2014.
These changes are among several that Division of Wildlife Resources biologists are proposing for Utah’s 2014 big game hunts.
All of the proposed changes should be available at www.wildlife.utah.gov/public_meetings.
After reviewing the ideas online, hunters can let their Regional Advisory Council members know their thoughts by attending an upcoming advisory council meeting or by submitting comments by e-mail.
Council chairmen will share the input they receive with members of the Utah Wildlife Board. This board will meet in Salt Lake City on Dec. 5 to approve rules for Utah’s 2014 big game hunts.
The southeastern region public meeting will take place Nov. 13 at 6:30 p.m. in Green River at the John Wesley Powell Museum. The meeting will give the public the opportunity to voice their concerns, suggestions and comments regading proposed wildlife changes.
To provide comments to advisory council members via email, visit https://wildlife.utah.gov/dwr/racmembers.html.
Each RAC member is listed online. Comments and suggestions should be directed to the people on the council who represent a specific interest.
