Does Summit County support hunting?
  • Summit County recognizes that hunting is a popular recreation activity in Utah and a matter of sustenance to some. In addition, Summit County views responsible, selective, legal and ethical hunting with carefully determined harvest rates as an important wildlife management tool and is one means of maintaining a balanced ecosystem.

  • Hunting can generate revenue for conservation efforts, incentivizing the preservation and protection of natural spaces.

  • Nevertheless, hunting will not be allowed on the 910. Summit County believes that given the historical 30-year hunting prohibition on the 910 Ranch combined with adjacent lands where hunting is allowed, will not result in ecological imbalances on the property.

  • The 910 will be managed as a wildlife sanctuary.
