Last chance to buy deer and elk hunting permits for fall season

Bear River had his hunting and fishing license suspended for five years for killing an elk in a protected area.

If you are interested in hunting deer or elk this fall, your last chance to buy a permit begins next week.

The Utah Division of Wildlife Resources says all general and multi-season bull elk permits will be available beginning at 8 a.m. on Tuesday, July 16.

The general-season permits allow hunters to harvest a bull elk using a muzzleloader or any legal weapon.

According to the DWR, there are 15,000 spike bull elk permits and 15,000 any bull elk permits available. General-season archery bull elk permits are unlimited.

General-season buck deer permits that remain after the big game drawing will be available on Thursday, July 18 at 8 a.m. There are 1,330 permits remaining, and DWR says they are also available on a first-come, first-served basis.

You can purchase a permit online, at a DWR office or from any available license agent. You can find all licensed agents, as well as the number of permits and available units, on the DWR website.
