Lifetime fishing and hunting licenses

Lifetime licenses initially became available on March 28, 1984. A lifetime license holder can fish and hunt in Utah without having to purchase an annual hunting, fishing or combination license. Additionally, upon completing the annual questionnaire, lifetime license holders also receive a general season deer permit at no additional charge.

The Utah Division of Wildlife Resources (DWR) stopped issuing lifetime licenses in 1994.
