What to know about group applications
Group applications allow you and your friends and family to apply together. A group application makes it possible for every member of the group to obtain a permit. If the application is not successful, however, then no one in the group will obtain a permit. For more information about group applications, read Utah Admin. Rule R657-62-7 and R657-62-19
Groups with nonresidents
Residents and nonresidents can apply together in a group. However, some hunts may not have enough nonresident permits for your group size which could make your group unsuccessful in the drawing. Consider the following examples:
The drawing issues up to 20% of the general season deer permits specifically to youth aged 18 or younger. Up to four youth can apply in youth-only groups and be considered for the reserved 20%. It is possible for an adult to apply with youth in a group. Any group that contains members over age 18, however, would not qualify as a youth-only group and would not be eligible to draw permits from the 20% issued specifically to youth.
