Utah's Predator Control Program

This predator control program provides incentives to remove coyotes for the benefit of mule deer

The DWR predator control program provides incentives for hunters to remove coyotes under rules approved by the Utah Wildlife Board outlined in Administrative Rule R657-64. Participants receive up to $50 for each properly documented coyote that they kill in Utah.

The Utah Division of Wildlife Resources is replacing the program's old Coyote Bounty Reporter app with a new reporting tool. Beginning Aug. 29, 2023, you must use the new app and its reporting tool to submit coyotes for compensation. The old app will be discontinued.

To start using this new tool — called Utah Coyote Bounty Reporter (Survey123) — you need to install the ArcGIS Survey123 app on your mobile device. See complete instructions for downloading the app and using the reporting tool.

With the new app — available for iOS or Android — you can provide required information electronically and submit it with a photo of the coyote. You will still be required to check in the coyote's scalp and lower jaw at a designated check-in station.
