Swan hunting permits
September 1, 2009
The chance to apply for a swan hunting permit is almost here. You can apply for a 2009 Utah swan hunting permit at http://www.wildlife.utah.gov, beginning Aug. 31 until 11 p.m. until Sept. 10, or by calling 801-538-4700 before 6 p.m. on Sept. 10. You must complete the one-time swan-hunting orientation course before applying for a permit. The course is available on the website and takes 20-30 minutes to complete. If you apply for a permit, but don’t draw one, you’ll receive a preference point that will put you at the top of the list in 2010. For the first time, up to four swan hunters can apply as a group. See page 12 of the 2009-2010 Utah Waterfowl Guidebook for more information. Two thousand permits will be available for this year’s fall hunt.
