From the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources:
If you're going to apply for a permit to hunt big game in Utah this fall, a wildlife official has some advice — apply before the last day of the application period.
Applications will be accepted at www.wildlife.utah.gov until 11 p.m. on Feb. 26.
"When you apply depends a lot on how much patience you have," says Judi Tutorow, wildlife licensing coordinator for the Division of Wildlife Resources. "If you apply before Feb. 26, you should get your application in fast."
"If you wait until Feb. 26, it could take longer," she says. "Thousands of hunters wait until the last day to apply. That much traffic can slow our Web site down."
Tutorow says if you do wait until Feb. 26 to apply, make sure you start applying before 11 p.m.
"Even if you haven't finished your application by 11 p.m., the system will let you complete your application as long as you don't log out before you've completed it," she says.
"If you log out after 11 p.m., and then you try and get back into the system, you'll be out of luck."
