Cougar harvest-objective hunting units

Please note that 2 more cougar units, Central Mountains Nebo and Wasatch Mountains Avintaquin, are now closed. Several other cougar units have closed early as well - please refer to the tables below for details.

The tables below indicate which cougar harvest-objective units are open. When a Cougar Management Area meets the total quota or the female subquota, all of the units within that Management Area will be closed. The exception, however, is if an individual unit's minimum harvest has not been reached. In that case, that unit will remain open until the minimum is met or the season ends.

For more information about harvest-objective and split hunting units, download the latest Utah Cougar Guidebook.
