Utah Hunting Licensing

Utah requires hunters to apply for tags via their online system at www.utah-hunt.com/ and use a credit card for payment. Utah does not accept paper applications and checks. The application period is generally in February with deadline around the first of March and draw results posted in the late April early May timeframe. Your first choice on applications is the most important one in Utah.

Utah has a program they call a Cooperative Wildlife Management Unit or CWMU for short. This allows qualifying landowners to get free tags for Elk, Mule Deer, Antelope and Shiras Moose on their own property and sell them to hunters. Utah provides CWMU's extended season dates for greater flexibity.

Utah also has a program they term "Conservation Big Game Tags" to various wildlife organizations such as the Mule Deer Foundation, Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, Safari CLub, National Wild Turkey Federation, Ducks Unlimited and others across the state. These tags are sold to raise funds for habitat prjects across the state but are usually quite expensive. Conservation tags specify a certain species, method of take and unit and will price based on demand. If you don't have a lot of bonus/preference points or time to wait this can be an excellent way to hunt Utah. Depending on your situation, these tags may be tax deductible.

Utah also offers certain landowners transferrable tags that can be resold to hunters. Hunters are not restricted to that piece of property and can hunt within the unit the tag is issued and during the defined season the tag is for.

Hunters born after Dec. 31, 1965 must have a valid Hunters Ed card.

Utah Hunting Information

Utah has recently been outstanding for trophy elk, but the best tags take many years to draw. Utah does have conservation tags available for purchase that allow hunters to bypass the drawing. Given the high demand for these premium tags prices can be high. In the past Utah has been a top trophy mule deer state but recently only a handful of units consistently produce B&C caliber deer.

British Columbia Hunting Information

British Columbia is an excellent hunting destination that offers a wide variety of game species. Vast wilderness areas and pristine coastlines provide world class adventure hunting for those seeking that trip of a lifetime. BC is arguably best known for big coastal black bears, Canada moose, grizzly bear, mountain lion, Dall sheep and Stone sheep. Hunters can book a hunt with an outfitter and avoid the license drawing process common in most U.S. states.
