How Much Does It Cost to Hunt Elk in Utah?

Booking a guided elk hunt in Utah can cost anywhere from $2,000-$15,000. West Canyon Ranch offers hunting programs throughout that price range. The price of private Utah elk hunting largely depends on which animal you wish to hunt. There are many factors that impact the cost of a private hunting trip including guide services, field dressing, amenities, transportation, lodging, and license costs. For more information on the cost of guided hunting in Utah, check out the hunting programs offered at West Canyon Ranch.

Can You Buy Elk Tags Over the Counter in Utah?

Most states distribute tags using a random draw, but others allow hunters to buy elk tags over the counter. Utah offers a select amount of elk tags online, as well as limited phone sales. After the Utah Division of Wildlife lists elk hunting permits online, they do not update the availability numbers to reflect the number of permits sold or still available. This permit process, along with limited availability, makes it difficult to obtain an elk tag. To see available elk hunting permits, visit the online permit sales website.

One of the advantages of booking a guided elk hunt in Utah is that you won’t need to worry about waiting for a tag or paying the cost for a license outright. West Canyon Ranch provides all necessary tags and a guaranteed shot opportunity as well.

Is Utah Good for Hunting?

Utah is well-known for its hunting population. The state boasts an impressive amount of differing game, thriving wildlife populations, and natural landscapes, making it a dream destination for many hunters. Some of Utah’s hunting options include deer, elk, pronghorn, bison, moose, mountain goat, bighorn sheep, turkeys, and waterfowl. Discover why elk hunting in Utah is renowned throughout the world at West Canyon Ranch.

The Utah Division of Wildlife Resources says “Utah has some of the best hunting in the country, with a variety of species and opportunities available.
