DWR gives mixed review concerning the opening of archery season in Utah

The statewide elk and deer archery hunt opened on Aug.16 with a mixed outcome, according to a Aug. 20 Department of Wildlife Resources press release.

"Although a few bucks and bulls are being harvested, most conservation officers report a slow start," said Brent Stettler in the release. "Hunters are seeing a few large bucks, a lot of yearling bucks and a fair number of bulls."

Hunting pressure has been very heavy on the Manti-LaSal National Forest in Carbon and Emery counties but has been down from previous years in Grand and San Juan Counties. Populations of game animals appear to be about the same as in previous years, concluded Stettler.
