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.

Kansas Hunting Information

Kansas is one of the top producing monster whitetail buck states in the country. It also has some excellent turkey hunting and a few big mule deer in the western part of the state. Kansas has an excellent reputation as a top notch destination for upland birds. It has excellent populations of pheasant and quail due to the vast expanse of suitable prairie and grassland type habitat.

Arizona Hunting Information

Arizona has lots of trophy big game but is probably best known for its trophy elk and mule deer. This partially due to the limited number of tags available.
