SALT LAKE CITY — Utah’s general archery buck deer hunt started Aug. 18, and hunters can expect to see a good number of young bucks.
The Division of Wildlife Resources says lots of fawns were born in 2011, and most of them survived the winter of 2011-12. Because it’s been hot and dry across Utah this summer, finding water will be the key to finding the deer.
This year is the first year general archery hunters will be limited to hunting on one of 30 new deer hunting units in Utah. For the past several years, archery hunters have been allowed to hunt statewide.
DWR biologists have provided deer hunting reports for most of Utah's 30 units. The reports are available on the DWR's website at go.usa.gov/GJT. The reports are split into five groups based on where the units arelocated.
Hunters are asked to remember to ride their ATVs only on designated roads and trails. If they take it off a designated road or trail, they might lose their privilege to use ATVs on public lands in Utah.
