Checkpoints to take place during hunting seasons

Print PageEmail PageShareGet Reprints

The Division of Wildlife Resources is planning a large number of administrative checkpoints this fall during big game hunting seasons in southeastern Utah.

Since two deer were diagnosed with chronic wasting disease in eastern Utah, biologists and conservation officers want to sample as many harvested animals as possible to determine the presence and extent of the disease.

In addition to biological data collection, conservation officers will check compliance with game laws, issue citations and make arrests when necessary.

Checkpoints will occur along various highways and roads during all hours of the day and night. The public's patience and cooperation is enjoined as the DWR attempts to accomplish its mission as steward of the state's wildlife resources.
