Slide 1: ==== ==== [VIDEO] - Funny Redneck Deer Hunting, Got To See It..... www.BZ9.com/DeerHunting ==== ==== There are more mule deer in Utah than any other big game animal. And deer hunting in Utah is big business. Why? Because trophy mule deer are one of the most alluring game species in North America. Few experiences will get your heart pounding harder than seeing a monster muley - sporting a massive rack - close up in the wild. It has happened to me every time I've had the privilege of seeing one. Maybe it's because I've come to realize how hard it is to actually get close enough to see one. And, yes, there still are deer like this in Utah. But a number of factors are making it harder to even see one let alone have the chance to hunt one. One thing you should be aware of. There are no whitetail deer in Utah. An occasional whitetail may wander in from a neighboring state but such occurrences are rare. Is Deer Hunting In Utah As Good As It Used To Be? One thing that's apparent to anyone who has hunted mule deer in Utah for any length of time. The deer population here has been declining. For the last 30 years to be exact. Many factors can be blamed for the decline. But the main reason is becoming a common theme throughout the country. There's just less land available for mule deer to thrive. And the land that's left has deteriorated to the extent it's now detrimental to healthy mule deer numbers. Whenever a species like mule deer has less suitable habitat, disease and predation by other species are magnified. Favorable mule deer habitat in Utah is also shrinking due to an overall climatic trend in the state. A trend toward drier conditions. Drought has existed in a lot of the state for several years. Deer hunting in Utah is allowed in most public areas of the state except for national parks, national monuments and state parks. It's managed by the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources (DWR) and proclamations are set yearly. The best way to plan for a hunting trip is to check the latest Utah big game proclamation. You can do that online at the DWR site. Mule deer are spread throughout the entire state. Some of the best hunting is: in the Wasatch and Uinta Mountains east of Salt Lake City. in all the national forest areas across the Colorado Plateau.
Slide 2: in the La Sal and Abajo Mountains of southeastern Utah. in the Paunsagaunt Plateau area of southern Utah. along the Skyline Drive mountaintop road of central Utah. in all the national forests and throughout the state's vast mountainous areas. Nature Takes Its Toll on Utah's Deer Herd Nature wreaked havoc on Utah mule deer after several years of drought and a bitter winter with record snow in 1992-1993. It became apparent that Utah's deer herd could no longer allow an unlimited hunt. For the first time ever, buck permits were capped in 1994. Since 1994, 97,000 general season buck permits in five hunting regions have been sold each year. This becomes a difficult process to monitor, though, as permits are sold over-the-counter. In some years, permits exceeded 97,000. By moving to a draw in 2000, sales of permits have been held real close to the 97,000 cap. Severe drought in Utah has continued to take its toll on deer hunting in Utah. The number of permits was capped at 95,000 in 2005. And the first statewide deer management plan was approved that same year. Plans for each unit are updated every few years. One of the biggest obstacles working against deer hunting in Utah is the maturation of the remaining plant community. Many of the most critical deer ranges are in the late stages of their life cycle. They are dominated by mature pinion-juniper, other conifers and older shrubs like sagebrush. With pivotal winter deer ranges covered by older shrubs, there has been little regrowth of younger plants. Annual grasses such as cheatgrass are taking over a lot of traditional mule deer habitat. Some of the other factors affecting mule deer numbers in Utah and throughout the west are both natural and man-made. The primary predators for mule deer in Utah are cougars, coyotes and, yes, even black bears. As anyone who enjoys the outdoors has probably noticed, the number of off- highway vehicles (OHVs) has exploded. Whether those who promote these machines like to admit or not, they caused extensive damage to mule deer habitat. From 1998 to 2006, OHV use tripled in Utah. And it's gone up 100-fold in the last 30 years! Uncontrolled use of OHVs not only damages mule deer range, it also causes undue stress on the deer during critical periods of their life cycle - especially in winter when energy conservation can be the difference between life and death. While the use of OHVs on public land is a legitimate right, their uncontrolled and improper use not only damages wildlife habitat, it can kill wildlife. For this reason, there has been an increased demand for more areas to be designated as walk-in and horseback only areas. Remote areas with fewer hunters and no OHV traffic. Biologically, limiting areas to foot and horse travel can limit hunter pressure, reduce harvest and increase buck to doe ratios.
Slide 3: A Part Of Utah Life Mule deer are the most important game animal in Utah. Thousands of families still plan their falls around the deer hunt. Deer hunting in Utah is strongly rooted in the social fabric. And a lot of people in the state make their living catering to people who love the fantastic outdoors. There are few people who don't enjoy seeing deer in the wild. A lot of time and a lot of money is spent in Utah each year watching and photographing mule deer. Areas that produce large bucks are attractive to hunters as well as people who enjoy just seeing them. And Utah has plenty of units that produce large bucks. Even "monster" trophy bucks. Head down to the area south of the Paunsagaunt Plateau in southern Utah in late fall. Drive some of the back roads east of Kanab with a camera and be careful your jaw doesn't hit the steering wheel. I've been there and seen them. The Future Of Mule Deer In Utah The goal of Utah game managers is to increase the state's mule deer population to a post-season size of 350,000 by 2013. That would mean another 50,000. As precipitation appears to be returning to normal - especially this year, 2009 - it seems to be a reasonable goal. Another one of their goals is to give residents and visitors to Utah a diverse range of high-quality hunting and viewing opportunities for mule deer throughout the state. How to Plan A Utah Deer Hunt Both the Central and the Northeastern Regions have improved dramatically in recent years. Herds in both of these regions average 16 bucks per 100 does. This allows more permits to be issued in these areas. The Northern Region has not enjoyed the same rebound. The winter of 2007-2008 was not kind to deer in this region. The two units - the Cache and Ogden units - reduced the ratio down to 10 bucks per 100 does. If you're looking to get a chance at a trophy Utah buck, there are a couple ways to go. Utah has a wide assortment of professional outfitters ready and willing to help you go on the hunt of a lifetime. If you have the resources, hiring one of these outfitters is absolutely the best way to go. They have access to land no one else has. They know where the deer are and you don't have to worry about having thousands of other people invading your space. And, once again, they have access to land throughout the state. Utah has some of the biggest trophy mule deer on the planet and these people will get you to where they live. If you don't have the resources or the desire to hire an outfitter, take a look at the big game proclamation at the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources website or contact them directly. It'll give you the best overview there is about deer hunting in Utah. You can apply for one of the general permits or one of the lottery-type limited entry hunts. If you're applying for one of these, plan a year ahead. Licenses
Slide 4: Resident and non-resident permits for general hunts are available on a first-come, first-served basis from licensed dealers statewide, from DWR offices and via the internet. Permits for some of the special hunts are allotted via lotteries. Check the proclamation for those. Rod Besler An online guide about all the fantastic things Utah has to offer visitors.
