SOME MILLARD AREAS OFF LIMITS TO HUNTING

SHARE SOME MILLARD AREAS OFF LIMITS TO HUNTING

The Millard County Commission has declared all cemeteries in the county and a large area of land southeast and east of Fillmore City "off limits" to hunting or pursuing game or wildlife.

Shooting rifles, shotguns or bows and arrows within a half-mile of any residence is prohibited during big game hunts.The regulations went into effect Oct. 15.

Officials believe prohibiting hunting in these areas will provide additional safety for Fillmore residents and those who live on farms and in outlying areas of the counties. Most cities also have ordinances prohibiting shooting or hunting.

The county ordinance received unanimous commission support.
