Big game season isn’t until fall, but Thursday is the first day hunters can apply to get a big game permit.
Applications have to be into the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources before 11 p.m. on March 7, 2019, to be included in the permit drawing.
DWR is accepting applications for every big game hunt except for bull elk.
DWR said general-season elk permits will be available on a “first come, first serve” basis, starting July 16, 2019.
