Starting July 8, the Division of Wildlife Resources will accept applications for this fall’s sage grouse, sharp-tailed grouse and sandhill crane hunts.

To be included in the draw for permits, your application must be received through the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources website no later than July 22, 11 p.m.

You can also apply by calling the nearest DWR office no later than July 22 at 5 p.m.

If you’re not going to hunt grouse or cranes this year, you can still apply for a preference point. Hunters with preference points have the best chance of obtaining a permit in 2016.
