Hunting many species of birds in Utah is as simple as buying a game license but for four specific species, a special permit is required. The Division of Wildlife Resources shares that anyone hoping to hunt tundra swan, sharp-tailed grouse, greater sage grouse, or sandhill crane this fall, need to get their paperwork in soon. Applications are being accepted for these bird hunting permits and the applications must be complete no later than July 19th. Starting this year, hunters need to have a combination or small game license in order to apply. These can be purchased before starting the application process or while applying at www.wildlife.utah.gov. Hunters will know if they drew a permit by August 6th.
