Utah's upland game slams

Slams

Slams are completed when a hunter harvests the following species. Hunters will receive a coin for each slam completed.

Earn coins like these when you complete Utah's Upland Game Slams.

The Upland Game Slam program is a partnerships between the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources and multiple conservation organizations and sponsors to encourage hunters to harvest the variety of species available across the state and to help fund upland game-related projects. Each slam is an accomplishment that you can pursue and commemorate with a collectable coin.

How to participate

Upland Game Slam vouchers can be purchased at any license agent or on the DWR online sales system. (Vouchers purchased online may take up to two weeks to arrive.) The cost of participating in the slam is $10 for youth, 17 or younger, and $20 for adults. Vouchers look similar to hunting licenses and are printed on license paper. The voucher needs to be presented at a qualifying Upland Slam location (see below) to receive a slam card. A slam card is needed to participate in the slam.

When you harvest game animals for a slam, take a picture of yourself with both your slam card and harvested animals visible. Snap shots on a phone, etc. are sufficient; there is no need to print the photos to redeem your slam. Animals for the Mountain and Desert slams may be harvested throughout the season, and they do not need to appear in the same photo. For Long Tail Limit and Blister Slams, have your daily bag limit (2 pheasant, 5 chukar) visible in one photo.

To receive a collectable coin for each slam, present a picture of your harvest, along with your hunting license and slam card at qualifying locations.

See addition directions below for redeeming Ultimate Slams.

The 2017–2018 slam cards and coins are available now.
