2020 Utah Leftover Hunting Permit List

2020 Utah leftover hunting permits

There are a few options remaining if you'd like to hunt mule deer in Utah this fall. In total, there are 909 leftover general season tags that are up for grabs starting July 21 at 8 a.m. In addition to that number, there is also 3,250 youth-only archery general season deer tags. The list of available licenses can be found in the tables below with more information on trophy potentials, season dates, male:female ratios, and links to all of the Unit Profiles. Also, general season bull elk permits are available starting July 16 at 8 a.m.

Remember, as of July 1, nonresident fees increased in Utah. Learn more about the fee increase here.

Note: New for 2020, if you purchase a general season leftover buck deer permit that’s available after the big game drawing, you will lose any preference points you’ve accrued for general season buck deer.

You must have a valid hunting license or a combination license. Note: Due to COVID-19, all permit sales will be done online only.

Utah does not actively update their leftover permit numbers after they go on sale, but you can see the number of remaining permits when you go online to purchase one.
