Beginning Saturday, Aug. 18, eight archery hunts will begin. They include limited entry bull elk hunts, pronghorn and buck deer hunts; premium limited entry buck deer hunts; general spike elk hunts, any bull elk, deer and buck deer hunts, and CWMU (Cooperative Wildlife Management Units) buck deer and bull elk hunts.
Other fall hunts for animals such as black bear and white-tailed ptarmigan hunts begin the following week. With the season not ending until the end of snowshoe hare on March 15, residential hunters will have information on hunting for nearly seven months.
“Utah offers a wide variety of upland game hunting,” said Jason Robinson, DWR upland game coordinator. “You can hunt the ptarmigan one day, then find yourself hunting for Chukar partridge the next day.”
