Hunting the 2019 extended archery season

If you didn't get your deer or elk earlier in the season, here's another chance.

If you haven’t taken a deer or elk by the time your 2019 archery general-season or limited-entry hunt ends, you can continue your archery hunting in Utah’s extended archery areas.

Before hunting in any of Utah’s extended archery areas, though, you must complete the Division’s Archery Ethics course each year. You must carry your Archery Ethics Course certificate of completion with you while you’re hunting.

This hunter ethics course is in addition to Utah's hunter education requirement. We also recommend that archery hunters complete bowhunter education.

Hunting in an extended archery area

After you successfully complete the course, you should print your certificate of completion. You must carry your Archery Ethics Course certificate of completion with you while you’re hunting.

In the Cache Laketown, Herriman South Valley (new), Ogden, Uintah Basin, Utah Lake (new), Wasatch Front and West Cache extended archery areas, you may use archery equipment to take a deer of either sex (hunter’s choice) from Sept. 14 – Nov. 30, 2019.

In the Sanpete Valley (new) and South Wasatch (new) extended archery areas, you may use archery equipment to take a deer of either sex (hunter’s choice) from Sept. 14 – Oct. 15, 2019.

Limited-entry deer and elk archery hunters must still complete their harvest survey questionnaire within 30 days of the end of their limited-entry hunt.

Please download and read through the 2019 Utah Big Game Field Regulations guidebook for complete information regarding the extended archery hunts.

Taking the Archery Ethics Course

The course takes about 30 minutes to complete. You must score 100 percent to pass the course, but if you answer a question incorrectly you will have an opportunity at the end of the test to answer the question again. You may take the course as many times as needed.
