The 2014 extended archery season

If you haven’t taken a deer by the time the general-season archery buck hunt ends, or an elk by the time the general-season archery elk hunt ends, you can continue your archery hunting in Utah’s extended archery areas.

Before hunting in any of Utah’s extended archery areas, though, you must complete the Division’s Archery Ethics course each year. You must carry your Archery Ethics Course certificate of completion with you while you’re hunting.

This hunter ethics course is in addition to Utah's hunter education requirement. We also recommend that archery hunters complete bowhunter education.

Hunting in an extended archery area

After you successfully complete the course, you should print your certificate of completion. You must carry your Archery Ethics Course certificate of completion with you while you’re hunting.

Hunters who have a general-season archery buck deer permit may hunt within the Wasatch Front, Ogden or Uintah Basin extended archery areas during the seasons listed below.

Hunters who have a general-season archery elk permit may hunt within the Wasatch Front, Uintah Basin or Sanpete Valley extended archery elk areas during the extended archery season.

Taking the Archery Ethics Course

The course is 20 questions long and takes about 30 minutes to complete.

You must score 100 percent to pass the course, but if you answer a question incorrectly you will have an opportunity at the end of the test to answer the question again. You may take the course as many times as needed.
