Get a free upland game guidebook

As Utah swelters under the summer sun, a cool reminder that fall isn't that far away is waiting for you online. You can also get a printed copy of the 2018–2019 Upland Game Guidebook at your nearest Utah hunting license agent location or Division of Wildlife Resources office.

See mountain goats in unique terrain

You could see as many as 100 mountain goats on Aug. 11, 2018. And you might not need binoculars to see them. At some past viewing events, goats have gotten as close as 35 feet to those viewing them.

Report hunting violations

With most of Utah's hunting seasons in full swing, wildlife officers are asking hunters and anglers — and others who are in the outdoors too — to watch for illegal hunting activities. That includes hunters shooting animals but not retrieving them, shooting after dark or any activity that seems suspicious.

Wolverine found in Rich County

Even though it was hit and killed by a vehicle, the fact a wolverine was in northern Utah is exciting to staff with the Division of Wildlife Resources. "This wolverine was not transplanted to Utah," says DWR Director Greg Sheehan. "It made its way here on its own. It's amazing to see the diversity of wildlife we have in Utah expand even more. Particularly, such a charismatic and mythical species as the wolverine."
