Utah Legislation Would Prohibit Baiting of Big Game and Restrict Hunting in Waterfoul Management Areas

Utah House Bill 295 would make it unlawful to, without authorization, “bait big game, take bake big game in a baited area, or take big game that has been lured to or is traveling from a baited area.” The bill would also establish “waterfoul management areas” in which providing hunting guide or outfitter services and constructing permanent blinds or hunting structures would be prohibited. The bill additionally directs the Wildlife Board to “make rules regulating the use of trail cameras.”
