Applications will be available by May 24 to hunt cow elk, cow moose, doe deer and doe pronghorn antelope in Utah this fall.
At its April 28 meeting, the Utah Wildlife Board voted to set aside 20 percent of the antlerless elk, deer and pronghorn permits for hunters who will be 18 years of age or younger on Aug. 20, which is the beginning of this year's general archery buck deer hunt.
To be entered in the 2005 Utah Antlerless Draw, mail-in applications must be received no later than 5 p.m. on June 20. Hunters applying through the website must submit their applications no later than 11 p.m. on June 20. Draw results will be posted by July 28.
Previous applicants should receive a preprinted application in the mail. Those who don't receive an application by May 24 may obtain one from the DWR's website, DWR offices and hunting and fishing license agents statewide.
