Concise explanation of the particular statutory provisions under which the rule is enacted and how these provisions authorize or require the rule:

Under the authority of Sections 23-14-1, 23-14-3, 23-14-18, and 23-14-19, the Wildlife Board is authorized and required to regulate and prescribe the means by which wildlife may be taken.

Summary of written comments received during and since the last five-year review of the rule from interested persons supporting or opposing the rule:

The Division of Wildlife Resources (Division) has not received any written comments regarding this rule. Any comments received in opposition to this rule are resolved using existing policies and procedures or the issue is placed on the Regional Advisory Council's and Wildlife Board's agenda for review and discussion during the process for taking public input. The public is welcome to view the Regional Advisory Council minutes, Wildlife Board minutes, and the administrative record for this rule at the Division.

Reasoned justification for continuation of the rule, including reasons why the agency disagrees with comments in opposition to the rule, if any:

This rule creates a hunting mentor program that will increase hunting opportunities for Utah families and provides the procedures under which a minor child may share the permit of another to take protected wildlife, including all big game general season permits, big game limited entry permits, once-in-a-lifetime permits, all antlerless big game permits, bear, and cougar. Therefore, this rule should be continued.
