Dedicated Hunter Program
Greater opportunities to hunt and contribute to Utah's wildlife.
The Dedicated Hunter Program is a service-based hunting program that allows participants to have more time to hunt deer (general season) each year. This program:
- Promotes the overall hunting experience, rather than consistently taking an animal.
- Provides hunters with opportunities to contribute their time to wildlife-related service projects.
- Provides participants with additional education about wildlife management and ethics.
As a result of this program, many important wildlife-related projects are accomplished each year that, otherwise, could not be done.
