SALT LAKE CITY — An additional 1,450 cow elk hunting permits have been approved for this fall’s hunts.
Utah’s elk herds are doing well, but dry conditions this year have affected the plants on the ranges that elk rely on during the winter.
To protect the plants, the Utah Wildlife Board approved the additional permits, which will allow extra hunters to hunt in northern and eastern Utah.
The first day people can get the permit is Sept. 6. Permits will be available online at www.wildlife.utah.gov, at DWR offices and from more than 300 hunting license agents across Utah.
For more information, call the nearest Division of Wildlife Resources office or the DWR’s Salt Lake City office at 801-538-4700.
