Permits to hunt bull elk in Utah this fall are almost gone. On the morning of Sept. 13, the following general elk permits were still available:
Unit Permits available
Any bull 2,199

The general rifle bull elk hunt starts Oct. 9. Last fall, permits sold out before the hunt started.
“Don’t wait to get your permit,” says Judi Tutorow, wildlife licensing coordinator for the Division of Wildlife Resources. “If you want to hunt bull elk in Utah, get your permit now.”
You can buy a permit at http://www.wildlife.utah.gov/ . Permits are also available at DWR offices and from more than 300 hunting license agents across Utah.
