Species commonly hunted in Utah are mule deer, elk, antelope, pheasant, ducks, geese, rabbits, sage grouse, forest grouse, chukar partridge, mourning dove and wild turkeys. Hunting is allowed in most public areas of the state, except in national parks, monuments, and state parks.


Resident and non-resident permits for general hunts can be purchased on a first-come, first-served basis from license dealers statewide, from DWR offices and via the internet. Some special hunt permits are allotted via lotteries, with application periods set in the proclamation.

Hunting Seasons

Seasons for all huntable species are set yearly. Information on big game seasons is available in January and small game information can be obtained by late August each year.
