    (SALT LAKE CITY, Utah) - If you don't obtain a limited-entry cougar hunting permit this year, no problem — you can still hunt cougars in Utah. Judi Tutorow, wildlife licensing coordinator for the Division of Wildlife Resources, says there are three major differences between harvest-objective units and limited-entry units:

    The number of permits that can be sold for a harvest-objective unit isn't limited. You can buy harvest-objective permits online or over-the-counter. The hunt on a harvest-objective unit can close before the season ends.

    "For example," Tutorow says, "let's say the harvest objective for a management area is 48 cougars. The hunt on all of the units in that area will close when 48 cougars are taken on the area, even if the date when the season is supposed to end hasn't arrived yet."

    The season can also close early if hunters take the number of female cougars that biologists want taken on the management area.

    If an area closes early, that doesn't mean your cougar hunt is over. If the area you want to hunt closes, you can still hunt on any harvest-objective area in Utah that's still open to hunting.
