Accessible wildlife for people with disabilities

The Division of Wildlife Resources supports citizens with disabilities.

We encourage people with disabilities to take advantage of Utah's natural resources. The DWR has many licensing opportunities specifically tailored to meet the needs of citizens with disabilities. In addition, the DWR and other public and private agencies have developed parks, campgrounds, trail systems, fishing piers, and other programs to enable access to our natural resources throughout the state. Read the DWR administrative rules regarding hunting and fishing accommodations for people with disabilities.
