This year’s big game draw is over. More than 1,400 general archery permits, and more than 1,800 general muzzleloader permits were not taken in the draw. Remaining permits go on sale July 11.
Permits are still available for nine of Utah’s 30 deer hunting units. hunters can see which units have permits on the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources website.
Starting July 11 at 8 a.m. the remaining permits will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Permits can be obtained on the DWR website. Permits will also be available at DWR offices and from more than 300 hunting license agents across Utah.
Please note that some of the license agents may not be open for business by 8 a.m. on July 11. Hunters should contact the agent in advance to learn business hours.
Judi Tutorow, wildlife licensing coordinator for the DWR, says the agency’s website could be busy on the morning of July 11.
“Once enough people have accessed the site,” she says, “a message will pop up indicating the site has reached its maximum capacity.”
If this happens, Tutorow encourages everyone to be patient. “You should be able to access the site again in a few minutes,” she says.
