    For one reason they moved it back a month because the draw application period doesn't close til first of March. I'm sure there is a better reason, but end of May is the date. I'm sure CC will be hit starting the week before...

    Dear Big Game applicant: As listed in the Utah Big Game Application Guidebook, the 2011 drawing results will be available May 31. We realize this is a later date than in years past, but we needed the additional time to incorporate data from the 2010 hunts (population statistics, tooth ages and harvest reports) into our recommendations for 2011 permit numbers.



    We thank you for your patience. We feel the additional time is an important factor in managing Utah's big game.

    Yea - moved it back a month..... In other words the state has all of the money tied up that came in with the applications for on extra month - so they can use it to do things like feed prisoners, etc. The real reason they moved it back - in my eyes - would be because it helps their cash flow - seeing as how the economy has been in the toliet for a while.
