Cougar harvest-objective hunting units

Due to concerns about the recently transplanted bighorn sheep population on the Mineral Mountains, the cougar harvest-objective on the Beaver, West hunting unit is now unlimited, and will remain open until the season ends on November 3, 2020.

In an effort to help mule deer recover from population declines caused by drought and heavy winter conditions, the Division has re-opened and increased harvest objectives on the following units: Beaver, West; Box Elder, Desert; Chalk Creek; and Ogden. As a result, the Beaver, Mineral Mountains unit has been eliminated. Harvest objectives have also been increased on the following units: Cache; Beaver, East; Book Cliffs, East; Monroe; Morgan-South Rich; Nine Mile, North; and Plateau, Boulder.

The tables below indicate which cougar harvest-objective units are open. For more information, download the latest Utah Cougar Guidebook.
