Elk hunting permits on sale July 27

From the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources

-- More than 3,200 rifle and muzzleloader permits for the Northern Region were not taken in Utahs 2011 big game draw. The permits go on sale starting at 7 a.m. on July 27.

Hunters who buy a permit can hunt for up to nine days in the northern part of the state. It will be the final general deer hunt in Utah in five large regions. Starting in 2012, general buck deer hunting in Utah will take place in 30 smaller areas called units.

Also starting July 27, hunters can buy a  bull elk or deer permit at the Division of Wildlife Resources' website and from DWR offices and more than 300 hunting license agents across Utah.

Judi Tutorow, wildlife licensing coordinator, said "if the site reaches the maximum number of people it can serve, a message will pop up indicating the site has reached its full capacity. If that happens, stay on the site and be patient. You should be able to access the site again in a few minutes."

For more information, call Salt Lake City office at (801)538-4700.
