Applications to hunt wild turkeys in Utah next spring will be available by Nov. 28.
Hunters can obtain an application from hunting license agents statewide, Division of Wildlife Resources offices and the DWR's Web site (www.wildlife.utah.gov).
Hunters who have a major credit card can apply on the Web site.
"I'd encourage hunters to apply this way," says Judi Tutorow, wildlife licensing coordinator for the Division of Wildlife Resources. "Applying on the Internet is the easiest and fastest way to get your application in."
Hunters who don't have a major credit card must mail their application in.
"I'd like to remind hunters that it will take a few days for the application to arrive in the mail," Tutorow says. "I'd encourage them to obtain an application as soon as they're available, and to mail it back as soon as possible."
To be entered in the draw for permits, applications must be received through the mail no later than 5 p.m. on Dec. 26, or through the DWR's Web site no later than 11 p.m. on Dec. 26. Draw results will be posted by Jan. 31, 2007.
The number of permits available for each of Utah's wild turkey management units is found in the 2007 Utah Wild Turkey Hunting Guide. The guide is available at the DWR's Web site (www.wildlife.utah.gov/proclamations/) and DWR offices. Hunting license agents should also have copies of the guide by late November.
Utah's 2007 wild turkey hunts will be held in April and May.
