Hunters can expect checkpoints this season.
The Division of Wildlife Resources will be checking hunters and harvested wildlife at various checkpoints in Carbon, Emery, Grand and San Juan counties. During the general buck deer rifle hunt, which runs Oct. 19-27, DWR officers will check hunters traveling on interstate highways, state highways and county roads at various times of the day and night.
Law enforcement personnel will monitor compliance with Utah state hunting laws. Biologists will also be present to collect biological data from the animals harvested.
Similar checkpoints will also be conducted by the DWR in other counties.
