Successful Opening Weekend for Deer Hunt

The opening weekend of the rifle deer hunt was a success with more than 56,000 hunters and their families and friends heading into Utah’s backcountry. Division of Wildlife Resources conservation officers were set up at check stations throughout the state, checking licenses and taking a close look at the deer harvested. The DWR Northeastern  check station at Strawberry Reservoir reported a great first weekend. “The deer check stations are great ways for our DWR biologists to observe body conditions before the winter season and to obtain samples from our deer herd to test for chronic wasting disease,” shared DWR Northeast Division. “The more info we gather, the better.” The general rifle deer hunt runs through October 30th.
