Information about hunting and pursuing black bears in Utah
2020 Black Bear Guidebook
The 2020 Black Bear Guidebook summarizes the laws and rules that govern black bear hunting in Utah. The guidebook is designed to be a convenient quick-reference document for hunting regulations. You can use the references in the guidebook to search for the detailed statute or administrative rule that underpins the guidebook summary.
Remaining permits are available on a first-come, first-served basis. You must have a valid hunting license or a combination license to buy one of these permits. You can buy permits online and at license agent locations and DWR offices. Look up a license agent near you. Before you visit an agent, call ahead to verify hours of operation.
