They can help you find answers about what it is intended for, what rights and restrictions are in place and its specific terms and provisions.

The state of Utah utilizes a program that benefits hunters, private land owners, the state’s economy and its wildlife.  Cooperative Wildlife Management Units (CWMU’s) are hunt areas consisting of mostly private lands that have been authorized for the specific purpose of managing big game animals.  This Utah government program has opened more than two million acres of private land to the public. In order to qualify for the program, landowners must have a minimum of 5,000 contiguous acres to manage deer, pronghorn or turkey and a minimum of 10,000 contiguous acres for elk or moose.  Private landowners may join together to form a single CWMU.
