Thanks for the heads-up and reminding people.

It is not necessarily the "Latest News". The shorter season dates for these units are also listed in the 2009 Utah Big Game Guidebook.

I just found out about this today. I muzzleloader hunted And did not pay too much attention to the new dates. but my wife is hunting central nebo area and its a good thing i found out we would have been there on saturday. I wonder how many people dont know and will be out. I hope they have some signs at the entrances of those areas .

They do have signs posted at the mouth of all the canyons. Keep in mind that for the rifle hunt the five day units are the last five days of the hunt this year instead of the first like the muzzleloader season.
