Information on Utah's 2023 tag sale for general any bull units
Over-the-counter (OTC) tag sales will begin Thursday, July 13, at 8 a.m. MT for the 2023 general season any bull elk permits. Permits can be purchased through any Utah Division of Wildlife Resources (UDWR) office, at all license agent locations or online.
For 2023, UDWR has implemented changes to the any bull any legal weapon seasons. Now, two seasons will be offered: an early rifle hunt with a capped number of permits available and a late rifle hunt with no cap on permits.
Tag number and costs
For 2023, the department has made 15,000 permits available for the early season any legal weapon hunt, while the late season hunt will have no permit caps. The 15,000 early rifle permits are available to both residents and nonresidents. Hunters must first possess a valid hunting license before purchasing their general elk permit; however, this can be purchased with your permit at the time of sale.
