UTAH – October 8th marks the end of the application process for Mountain Lion. Many units require over a decade of points to successfully pull a tag, however, the quality of lions Utah produces is worth the wait. Members can check the draw odds of each unit prior to applying here.
The cougar harvest-objective permit allows you to take one cougar on any harvest-objective hunting unit until the season ends or the unit’s harvest objective (quota) has been met. The harvest-objective permit is available to all eligible hunters, except those who drew a cougar limited-entry permit. Both residents and nonresidents can purchase a cougar harvest-objective permit beginning Oct. 30, 2019. You can purchase this permit from license agents, Division offices and at wildlife.utah.gov.
Remember that any cougar permit purchased after the season opens is not valid until three days from the date of purchase. (This three-day waiting period also applies to cougar-control permits.)
