If you want to hunt cow elk, doe deer or doe pronghorn this fall — and youвЂ™ve been trying to find a copy of the 2011 Antlerless Guidebook — you can stop looking.
A printed copy of the guidebook wonвЂ™t be available this year. Instead, starting May 24, you can find everything you need to apply at one place — www.wildlife.utah.gov.
вЂњOnce you get used to it,вЂќ says Staci Coons, вЂњwe think youвЂ™ll like the change.вЂќ
Coons leads the Division of Wildlife Resources team that puts UtahвЂ™s hunting, fishing and trapping guidebooks together.В вЂњStarting this year,вЂќ she says, вЂњeverything you need to apply — including detailed topographical maps, hunt tables, boundary descriptions and the application itself — will be available in one spot.вЂќ
Coons says information for this fallвЂ™s antlerless big game hunts will be available at www.wildlife.utah.gov starting May 24. The 2011 antlerless big game application period opens June 1.
For more information, call the nearest Division of Wildlife Resources office or the DWRвЂ™s Salt Lake City office at (801) 538-4700.
