Are you looking for the 2012 Utah Antlerless Guidebook? You’ve come to the right place! The Division no longer prints an antlerless guidebook. Instead, you can take advantage of an online format that links you directly to the information you want to see.
You can also download the 2012 antlerless information and tables:
You can apply online for an antlerless permit from June 1–21, 2012. The pages linked below will provide all of the information and tools you need in order to apply.
Hunt tables and boundary maps
The field regulations for all big game hunts (both antlered and antlerless) are in the new 2012 Utah Big Game Field Regulations guidebook. A printed copy of the field regulations book will be available from Division offices and license agents in early June.
These antlerless pages summarize some of Utah’s big game hunting laws and rules.
Under many of the headings on these pages, you’ll see code references—such as Utah Code § 23-20-25 and Utah Administrative Rule R657-5-24—that are linked to the detailed statute or rule that underpins the summary. If you have questions about a particular subject, take a minute to click the links and read the rules.
You are also welcome to call or visit the nearest Division office if you have additional questions. For an in-depth look at all of Utah’s big game hunting laws and rules, visit wildlife.utah.gov/rules.
Who makes the rules?
The Utah Wildlife Board passes the rules and laws summarized in this guidebook.
There are seven board members, and each serves a six-year term. Appointed by the governor, board members are not Division employees.
The Division’s director serves as the board’s executive secretary but does not have a vote on wildlife policies.
Before board members make changes to wildlife rules, they listen to recommendations from Division biologists. They also receive input from the public and various interest groups via the regional advisory council (RAC) process.
If you have feedback or suggestions for board members, you can find their contact information online.
