The deadline for deer hunters to join Utah's Dedicated Hunter program is approaching fast. Hunters must complete a wildlife conservation course, which can be taken online, and pay their program registration fee, no later than April 1.
Under the current program, hunters who join receive a guaranteed buck deer permit for three years in the region of their choice and may hunt all three general seasons (archery, muzzleloader and rifle) each year.
In addition to completing the conservation course and paying the program fee by April 1, during their three-year enrollment participants must also attend a Regional Advisory Council meeting and provide a total of 24 hours of service on approved conservation projects that benefit wildlife.
The fee includes a participant's deer hunting permits during the three years they're in the program.
Participants are allowed to take a total of two deer during the three-year period and may not take two deer in the same year.
