Changes to the program in 2014

This year, there are a few minor changes to the Dedicated Hunter program.

  • The service hour requirement remains at 32 hours; however, the minimum number of hours you must complete each year has changed. Here are the main requirements for each year of the program:

    • Year 1: You must complete the online wildlife conservation and ethics course and have a valid Utah hunting or combination license.
    • Year 2: You must perform a minimum of 16 service hours and have a valid Utah hunting or combination license.
    • Year 3: You must perform a minimum of 16 service hours, for a total of 32 service hours (year 2 + year 3) and have a valid Utah hunting or combination license.
  • A Dedicated Hunter may withdraw (also called surrender) from the three-year program in either of the following circumstances:
    • Two of the three deer permits have not been issued in which the Dedicated Hunter had an available hunting season open.
    • A qualifying injury or illness occurs or the Dedicated Hunter leaves on a military deployment.
  • A person who withdraws from the program after receiving his or her first-year permit must have a minimum of 10 service hours completed.
