Hunting, Utah, Game

Hunting in Utah

Utah has some great hunting opportunities for big game, bear and cougar and more. Please review procedures and regulations before heading out.


For the outdoor sportsman, there are few better places to be in North America than right here in Utah. Thanks to careful state management, Utah is filled with healthy, thriving populations of wildlife-from big game, to game birds, to fresh water fish. Here, there's always a trophy (and a great story) just waiting for you.

Species hunted in Utah are mule deer, elk, antelope, pheasant, ducks, geese, sage grouse, forest grouse, chukar partridge, mourning dove, and wild turkey. A limited number of black bear, bison and mountain lion hunting permits are also issued.

Hunting is allowed on most public lands in the state, except in national parks and monuments and state parks (with exceptions). Check with the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources for regulations and seasons.


Licenses are available through Utah Wildlife Resources offices, most sporting goods stores in the state, and on-line at www.wildlife.utah.gov.
