Dedicated Hunter Program

Greater opportunities to hunt and contribute to Utah's wildlife.

Volunteers at a service project

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.

Dedicated hunters work on an important habitat rehabilitation project after a wildlife.

As a result of this program, many important wildlife-related projects are accomplished each year that, otherwise, could not be done.
