If you want to hunt sandhill cranes, sage grouse or sharp-tailed grouse in Utah this fall, you need to get your permit application in soon.
To be included in the draw for permits, your application must be received through www.wildlife.utah.gov no later than 11 p.m. on July 3.
You can also apply over-the-phone by calling the nearest DWR office no later than 5 p.m. on July 3.
If you’re not going to hunt grouse or cranes this year, you can still apply for a preference point. Hunters with preference points have the best chance at obtaining a permit in 2013.
If you apply for a permit, you’ll know by July 19 whether you drew one.
For more information, call the nearest Division of Wildlife Resources office or the DWR’s Salt Lake City office at (801) 538-4700.
