Utah Walk-In Access For Elk Hunting

A Walk-in Access (WIA) property is an area of private land on which the Division of Wildlife Resources has leased hunting, trapping or fishing privileges for those with an easily obtained authorization number.

Landowners enrolled in the WIA program receive monetary compensation based upon suitable habitat and wildlife, the amount of land, and the length of time the land or water is enrolled in the program. In addition to monetary payments, some landowners may also qualify for habitat restoration projects designed to attract and benefit wildlife species.

In most cases, access to WIA properties is limited to foot traffic only unless the landowner specifically designates roads for vehicle travel.

The Division will provide discretionary conservation officer patrols and liability coverage under Utah State law.
