These rules apply for all the Deseret Hunts/hunters

  • To ensure a quality hunting experience for all public hunters all scheduling and inquiring must be done through Wild Country Outfitters Management. Individual Wild Country Outfitter guides are NOT permitted to schedule hunts or deviate from the information in this letter. 
  • Our goal is to provide you with a quality hunting experience. You will be provided with the same opportunity as our paying clients are given. Your job is to enjoy the experience and conduct yourselves in a manner so that all other guests have a quality experience as well.
  • Hunters are allowed to shoot one and only one animal of which they have a permit for. Once you hit an animal and/or draw blood, that's your animal.  Please be aware of your animal and its surrounds, stalk your quarry and pick your shots carefully.  Anyone found wounding or harvesting more than one animal will be dealt with civilly by DLL and/or turned over to Law Enforcement for wanton destruction of wildlife charges with the state of Utah. 
  • No chasing, pursuing, pushing, herding, or harassing game with a vehicle. 
  • No hunting on Sundays
  • No alcoholic beverage are allowed on the ranch.

  • You are not to drive off the main gravel roads or well established two tracks. Failure to comply with this rule could result in you paying any repairs to damages and or pay fines imposed by the ranch.
  • State laws protect livestock on Deseret Land and Livestock (DLL). Do not harm, harass, or    shoot livestock. DLL may file civil charges against anyone for harassing, shooting, or harming livestock.
