Hunter Regulations on Dinosaur National Monument

Hunting season is here and Dinosaur National Monument is reminding hunters of rules and regulations. According to Chief of Visitor Services Dan Johnson, hunting is not permitted in the Monument. “Although most of the monument boundary is well marked, hunters are responsible for ensuring they do not hunt within the monument...The Lacey Act and the Code of Federal Regulations strictly prohibits the killing or removal of any animal, living or dead, and any animal parts, including shed antlers from public lands within the Monument without authorization. Violators will be prosecuted and are subject to penalties including fines, jail, restitution, and the forfeiture of vehicles, equipment, and personal property associated with the violations.” Contact law enforcement park rangers or state wildlife officers if wounded wildlife run within the Monument borders. Hunters are allowed to transport wildlife taken lawfully outside the Monument through the Monument on park roads but must have a valid state hunting license and a displayed game tag where applicable. Anyone that observes illegal hunting activity within Dinosaur National Monument are asked to call 781-7700.

Kristin never planned to work in news radio but has thoroughly enjoyed being part of the news team at KVEL. Her love of literature and writing developed in high school which led her to study English Literature and Technical Writing at BYU. She received her BA in English from BYU in 2005 and studied at UVU in Orem for 2 semesters to become a Certified Technical Writer in 2006. Two months after completion she began her dream job of being a stay-at-home mom.  As mother of 2 energetic kids, she began writing from home for the KVEL news team in 2011 and considers it the perfect fit as a full time mom and part time writer.
