Big Game in Multiple Land Use in Utah

Big-game animals are a recreational asset of much value and play an important part in multiple land use in Utah. By 1900 only a few remnants of the original population of deer, elk, antelope, and bighorn sheep were left. Restorative measures gradually built up the supply of elk and deer, so that by 1925 there was a surplus of these animals, which were doing so much damage to ranches and the range that controlled hunting, including the killing of cows and does, had to be initiated. This is proving successful, although various adjustments still remain to be made. Cooperation between federal and state official, landowners, livestock permittees, and sportsmen is gradually resulting in the preparation of management plans for specific areas that will assnre the sustained yield of big-game animals, along with other products, as part of an integrated program of land use.
