Utah Turkey Applications
Applications to hunt wild turkeys in Utah next spring will be available by November 30. Applications will be available from hunting license agents statewide, Division of Wildlife Resources offices and the DWR's Web site (wildlife.utah.gov).

Hunters who have a major credit card can apply on the Web site. "I'd encourage hunters to apply this way," said Judi Tutorow, wildlife licensing coordinator for the Division of Wildlife Resources. "Applying on the Internet is the easiest, fastest and most convenient way to get your application in."

Hunters who don't have a major credit card must mail their application in. "Hunters are reminded that it will take a few days for the application to arrive in the mail," Tutorow said. "We encourage them to obtain an application as soon as they're available, and to mail it back as soon as possible."

To be entered in the draw for permits, applications must be received through the mail no later than 5 p.m. on December 27, or through the DWR's Web site no later than 11 p.m. on December 27. Draw results will be posted by February 2, 2005.

A total of 1,306 Rio Grande wild turkey permits, and 501 Merriam's wild turkey permits, will be available to the public. The number of permits available for each of Utah's wild turkey management units may be found in the 2005 Utah Wild Turkey Proclamation. The proclamation should be available at DWR offices, the DWR's Web site and from hunting license agents by late November.

Utah's 2005 wild turkey hunts will be held in April and May.
