What is walk-in access as it pertains to hunting in Utah? I saw it mentioned recently on a local outdoors TV show.
Utah walk-in-access is a program in which the DWR (Division of Wildlife Resources) has leased tracts of land from private landowners.
The leasing of this land allows these lands to be used by the public for hunting, fishing, and trapping.
The landowners are paid based on several criteria:
- The suitability of their land for a particular recreational pursuit.
- The amount of land available.
- The length of time it's enrolled in the program.
In almost every case, access is limited to foot traffic only. Hence, the name walk-in-access.
