Turkey Hunting in Southern Utah

Get your turkey hunting license early so you don’t miss out since permits to hunt buck deer sold out quickly. Even though snow is just starting to fall in Utah, groups of Turkey hunters in Southern Utah are already preparing for next spring.

Applications to hunt wild turkeys during Utah’s limited-entry hunt are being accepted now. You can apply for your turkey hunting license at www.wildlife.utah.gov. Applications must be received no later than 11pm on December 28th to be included in the draw for permits. The limited-entry hunt will be held in April.

The following permits are for each Division of Wildlife Resources’ five regions.

Region Number of permits

◊Northern – 400

◊Central – 500

◊Northeastern – 250

◊Southeastern – 250

◊Southern – 1,100

If you don’t draw the limited-entry permit, don’t pack your gun away, you can still hunt turkeys this spring. The general statewide hunt will be held in May for those who didn’t get a permit.
