Spots Open on Wildlife Management Boards

Outdoor, hunting and wildlife enthusiasts are urged to consider application to wildlife management boards with open positions. Utah’s Regional Advisory Council will soon have openings. RAC members meet 6 times a year and listen to proposals from the Division of Wildlife Resources about hunting, fishing and wildlife management in the state of Utah. They also take public input and make recommendations which the RAC Chairmen then takes to the Utah Wildlife Board. Each region has RAC members that represent 6 interests: hunters, anglers and trappers; those who don’t hunt or fish; ranchers and farmers; locally-elected public officials; federal land managing agencies; and the public-at-large. If you’re interested in making an even bigger splash, there are also two openings on the Utah Wildlife Board. Governor Gary Herbert will make these appointments and Basin residents interested are eligible for one of the positions. Applications for the Utah Wildlife Board will be accepted starting February 1st. For more information on the RAC positions or Utah Wildlife Board, visit
