This year's big game draw is over. More than 1,400 general archery permits, and more than 1,800 general muzzleloader permits, were not taken in the draw.
The remaining permits go on sale July 11.
Which units have permits?
Permits are still available for nine of Utah's 30 deer hunting units. You can see which units have permits on our website.
Starting at 8 a.m.
The remaining permits will be available on a first-come, first-served basis starting at 8 a.m. on July 11.
You can get a permit on our website. Permits will also be available at Division of Wildlife Resources offices and from more than 300 hunting license agents across Utah.
Please note that some of the license agents may not be open for business by 8 a.m. on July 11. You should contact the agent in advance to learn when they'll open for business that day.
The website will be busy
Judi Tutorow, wildlife licensing coordinator for the DWR, says the agency's website could be busy on the morning of July 11. "Once enough people have accessed the site," she says, "a message will pop up indicating the site has reached its maximum capacity."
If that happens, Tutorow encourages you to be patient. "You should be able to access the site again in a few minutes," she says.
If you have questions, call the nearest Division of Wildlife Resources office or the DWR's Salt Lake City office at 801-538-4700.
