Information on hunting in Utah

Hunting guidebooks

Our hunting guidebooks summarize the official rules and regulations, and include season dates and other information about hunting in Utah. If you're planning to hunt in Utah, you should start by reading our guidebooks.

Hunt drawing applications

The number of people who want to hunt is often more than the number of permits available for some hunts. For these hunts, we conduct permit drawings. Apply online for upcoming hunt drawings or check your drawing results.

Buy available hunting permit

After each hunt drawing, any permits that were not purchased are sold online, at retail outlets and at DWR offices. Most permits are available only at certain times during the year.

Hunter Education

Hunter education

If you were born after 1965, you are required to complete an online or in-person hunter education safety course before obtaining a hunting permit in Utah.

Harvest reporting

Reporting your hunt information is important. Harvest reporting may be mandatory—depending on the species that you hunt—even if you didn't harvest an animal.
