Hunting


Hunting opportunities abound on trust lands throughout the state. Trust lands are open to the general public for hunting. We ask that you be respectful of trust lands as you engage in hunting activities and help us to preserve and protect the resource for the trust beneficiaries. Please contact the State of Utah Division of Wildlife Resources for more information on hunting seasons and licensing requirements.

Hunter Access Agreement

In 2007 the Trust Lands Administration entered into a hunter access agreement with the State of Utah Division of Wildlife Resources (UDWR). The terms of this agreement allow for public hunting access on trust lands in exchange for an annual payment to the Trust Lands Administration by the UDWR. This agreement allows the Trust Lands Administration to fulfill its mandate of generating revenue for the trust beneficiaries while preserving hunting opportunities for the general public.

Hunting and Off-Highway Vehicles (OHVs)

OHVs are a convenient form of transportation to hunting areas.  However, with the increased number of registered OHVs used during hunting seasons, it is vital for sportsmen and women to known and obey OHV laws and rules for their own safety and for the safety of others.  Hunters must also ride responsibly on designated roads and trails to protect their riding privilege, big game, and wildlife habitat.

Off-Trail Game Retrieval

Use of a motor vehicle for the retrieval of downed game off of a designated route is prohibited.

Commercial Outfitting/Guide Services

Commercial outfitters and hunting guides are required to obtain a right-of-entry permit prior to operating on trust lands.
