As a Dedicated Hunter, you are required to perform hours of service, typically on conservation projects that benefit Utah's wildlife and habitat.

Projects may vary from helping in a DWR office to installing remote guzzlers, but all of your efforts matter. Without your help, many valuable projects would not be possible.

You can start to earn service hours after you have received notification that you have successfully drawn a place in the program.

Dedicated Hunter service hour credit can be given to wildlife and wildlife-recreation projects that are pre-approved by the DWR.

Keep in mind
  • Project leaders are often out in the field, away from their phones. Please be patient. They will respond to your calls and emails as soon as they can.
  • All volunteers are welcome on projects, but Dedicated Hunters may only claim their own service hours. Hours cannot be transferred from person to person.
  • The time you spend driving to and from a project will not be credited toward your service hours unless specifically noted in the project description.
  • You may purchase service hours at the current buyout rate of $20 per hour. Utah residents may purchase no more than 24 of the 32 required hours. Nonresidents may purchase all of their hours.
  • Excess service hours can only apply to the current three-year enrollment period. They may not be carried over to future enrollments.
  • If you finish your three-year enrollment but you haven't completed your 32 service hours, you are still required to complete the hours through service or payment.
  • You cannot earn service hours before you’re accepted accepted into the Dedicated Hunter program. You may begin your service work after you receive a successful drawing result, which indicates that you have drawn a place in the program.
