Hunting is very popular among residents and visitors to Millard County. Some of Utah's best big game hunting units are found in this area, offering the opportunity for trophy hunts. There's also plenty of opportunity for casual hunters and family groups.
Mule deer and elk are common in the Fish Lake National Forest, in the areas east of I-15 and around Oak City. Deer can also be found throughout the west desert, in the sage-covered lowlands and the stands of juniper and pine trees on the hillsides and mountain slopes.
Pronghorn antelope roam the desert lowlands.
Waterfowl of many varieties frequent the Sevier River and Clear Lake, and can often be found on other lakes and reservoirs.
Upland game, including cottontail rabbits, pheasants and doves thrive on the edges of the extensive farmlands found here. Rabbits also live through the west desert.
Varmints, including coyotes, live throughout the area.
See the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources website for specific information and regulations governing hunting. You can also purchase licenses and permits on the DWR website.
