Additional Information

The Western Hunting & Conservation Expo combines the best of wildlife conservation and hunting expositions in a joint national convention between two major North American wildlife conservation organizations – the Mule Deer Foundation (MDF) and Sportsmen for Fish & Wildlife (SFW).

200 Utah premium, limited entry, and once-in-a-lifetime hunting permits are available to any and all sportsmen (not on revocation) through a public drawing for $5 per hunt unit application fee. No person may apply on behalf of another.

You can apply for all available permits at the Hunting Expo. Your bonus points and waiting period are not affected if you draw out for a limited entry permit. If you draw out for a once-in-a-lifetime permit, you will get the waiting period for that species in the Utah Big Game Draw. However, you will not earn bonus points when applying for these permits.

Any person may apply for any or all available permits at the Hunting Expo regardless of what permits he/she may have drawn in previous Utah public draws (unless the person is on revocation).

You must have a valid hunting or combination license when applying for the permits.

If you draw one of these great permits, you may still apply in the traditional Utah Big Game drawing that usually opens in early February. If you draw a Utah Big Game permit in the traditional draw for the same species, then you may only accept one of the two permits – it’s your choice.

The Expo permits drawing is conducted within 14 days of the close of the Expo. Successful applicant’s names and the permits they have drawn in the Expo drawing will be posted online at www.HuntExpo.com.
