Utah draw results can be found by checking your portal app fees. I cashed my points for one of the NR Paunsagunt deer tags. Been a while. Last hunt there was elk 1997.

Good for you Ken------->

See my quick link above/view, edit, withdrawl.

You will need your session/application #.

That is on your Email Application receipt when ya applied.

I drew my LE Muzzy Deer tag with 11 points.

Good luck, Robb

How do you tell if successful with the link above?

The application fee reportedly will change from showing the small app fee amount, to the amount of the license fee, if you've drawn that species.

This backdoor may disappear in future years as it becomes widespread knowledge. Look for the UTDWR phone lines to start getting hammered by people asking if this really means they've drawn. That was one reason for all the early-peek methods getting eliminated in CO a few years ago ;-)

Well, looks like nothing for Utah...

Colorado got rid of theirs when they screwed up the r/nr allocation and gave too many non resident tags and had to redo the draw. A bunch of whiny nonresidents cried about the backdoor showed they drew and CPW fixed the glitch

Looks like Utah shoved it in my back door as usual. :-(

Swung for the fence again for my 24th year of applying. Still short of the fence.

No need for me to check, I changed everything to a point after NM results came out.

My resident daughter, on the other hand, looks like nada. Maybe. Confirm with the email I suppose. No credit card hit yet either...

I think they already closed this. The view button is gray now.

13-May-24
Yeah, they closed the backdoor this morning.

Now they just need to go back and redo the draw. :^)

Yeah, I hope they redraw. I didn't even draw a general archery deer (as a resident). Running out of options at this point.

BTW, congrats on the tag Zim! Looking forward to seeing some pics and reading about it.
