Wildlife division plans to conduct checkpoints throughout the hunting season.
The Division of Wildlife Resources will be checking hunters and harvested wildlife at various checkpoints in Carbon, Emery, Grand and San Juan counties.
From August through October, roadblocks will be placed on state highways and county roads at various times of the day and night to monitor compliance with hunting laws and to collect biological data.
Hunters should expect to encounter conservation officers while participating in hunting activities and at various check points or roadblocks.
These contacts allow the division to fulfill its responsibility as trustee and custodian of the state's wildlife.
