SALT LAKE CITY -- Hard-to-get hunting tags would be transferable under legislation sponsored by Sen. Allen Christensen, R-North Ogden.
Christensen's bill, SB61, would allow residents who draw a tag for a rare hunt to potentially pass that tag on to a child or grandchild. No money could change hands as part of the transfer.
The bill received a favorable recommendation from a Senate committee Thursday and now goes to the Senate.
Christensen thinks the simple change is another mechanism to try to make hunting opportunities available to the coming generation.
Greg Sheehan, director of the Division of Wildlife Resources, said the bill was drafted to ensure that the heritage of hunting is passed down.
