Prized Big Game Permits

It’s already time to be thinking about 2017 big game hunting permits. The Division of Wildlife Resources says starting October 26th, hunters can begin applying for next year’s most prized Utah big game permits. Only Utah residents are allowed to apply and one permit is offered for specific species. Three that are not under big game are black bear, cougar and wild turkey. These permits are highly prized among Utah sportsmen. “If you’re one of the lucky hunters who draws one,” shares Licensing Coordinator Judi Tutorow, “ you’ll have plenty of days - and plenty of areas - to hunt.” Applications must be submitted by November 16th.
