Hunting In Bryce Canyon
Bryce Canyon Area Hunting Guides
Scenic Rim Trail Rides
Hunting for deer, elk, black bear and mountain lion on the Aquarius and Paunsaugunt Plateaus.
Although, Hunting is outlawed inside of Bryce Canyon National Park, outside of the park boundaries you can find an abundance of western wildlife living on the Paunsaugunt Plateau unit. This area is located in Kane and Garfield County, Utah and is one of the best western big game units in the United State for many species. This area is home to; Mule Deer, Rocky Mountain Elk, Antelope, Black Bear, Cougar, as well as many game birds including Pheasant, chucker, pine hen and many more. To view a great hunting map of Paunsaugunt Plateau unit please visit: http://wildlife.utah.gov/maps/public/details_boundary.php?boundary_id=163
This Big Game hunting unit is most commonly known for its Trophy Mule Deer and its higher quality of the species. The most common time you can view these deer is the first hour of each day and the last hour of light. This is when these animals typically look for food and water, before going for thick cover. Looking near water sources is always a great idea when out scouting for Mule Deer and most Big Game animals during the spring, summer and fall months. Utah’s Division of Wildlife Resources claims that there is around 35 Buck to 100 Does, so there is a great ratio of Bucks as compared to most regions.
Hunting on the Paunsaugunt Plateau can be challenging for many reason including the 7,000-9,000 feet (2,100-2,800 m) elevation change. There is a thick Pine, Juniper, and Cedar tree cover that blankets most of the entire unit. With the thickness of cover and the abundance of water sources these animals are in a great survival habitat. There is a couple main water sources that are always a great start for view these animals including Tropic reservoir (on top of the Plateau) and The Sevier River which runs the entire length of the Paunsaugunt unit. This hunting unit because of it elevation averages about 200 inches (5,100 mm) of snowfall per year and has at least 200 days in which the temperatures drop below freezing.
What will make your big game hunting or viewing a better experience? First, having the correct equipment, a good pair of 10X40 binoculars with you or spotting scope will help you to not only find these animals, but it will give you a much close look at them. Being pre-paired for all kinds of weather, including, rain, snow, and sunshine will make the game of patients much more comfortable. Do not make it harder than it needs to be, look for animals around water and food sources. There are creeks spread all through the Plateau that run year round. These creeks can be found in almost every Canyon and include such names as; Blue Fly Creek, Blubber Creek, Kanab and North fork of Kanab creek. A vehicle with 4-wheel drive will greatly increase your odds viewing of animals by being able to cover a lot of ground. Most of the dirt roads on the Paunsaugunt are maintained regularly but do to high traffic and weather the roads can get muddy or snow covered in just a few minutes. Another options is to set up trail cameras. Many hunters and guide service are now relying on Trail Cameras to figure out what animals are in the area and get their eating and drinking patterns figured out. These cameras are generally hung on trees near heavily trafficked water and food sources as well as game trails.
To research out how you can acquire a hunting tags for the abundance of Big game and bird specifies that calls the Bryce Canyon area home please visit Utah’s DNR website: http://wildlife.utah.gov
If you are lucky enough to acquire a Big Game permit through the Utah Big Game draw or landowner tag or action, looking into a guide service is not a bad idea. This is a very tough unit to learn but the rewards of it can make memories for a lifetime!

BRYCE CANYON AREA WEATHER
Bryce Canyon is in a portion of the country that experiences each of the four seasons. Bryce Canyon’s location and elevation allow it to experience vast weather changes throughout the year. Some seasons are more comfortable and temperate, and others can get quite harsh. However, during every season in Bryce, there are exciting activities to enjoy. Whether you visit during the heat of the summer or the chill of the winter, they will have a truly unforgettable adventure in this amazing area.
When considering the different seasons in Bryce, it is important to look at a few different areas of the weather. The average temperatures and precipitation have a huge impact on the outdoor activities guests can enjoy while visiting the park. By understanding the different weather conditions to expect, visitors can prepare for their trip and have the time of their life in Bryce, regardless of the season. Bryce Canyon is much higher in elevation so temperatures can swing fast when cold fronts come in.
You can enjoy Bryce Canyon’s mild weather during any season. Summer days in Bryce are pleasant and nights are cool at 8,000-9,000 feet. July is the warmest month, with an average daytime high temperature of 83 degrees and a nighttime low of 47 degrees. Much of the area’s precipitation comes as afternoon thundershowers during mid to late summer. Spring and fall weather is highly variable.
Cold winter days are offset by high altitude sun and dry climate. Winter nights are subfreezing. During some winters, Alaskan cold fronts descend on the Colorado Plateau region bringing temperatures as low as 30 degrees below zero.
Although March is the snowiest month, the area can have snowstorms from October through April. Annual snowfall averages 95 inches, giving you the change for the greatest for cross-country skiing and sledding in Utah’s world famous snow!
The high altitude sun can burn in any season– hats and sunscreen are recommended all year! Layered clothing is good preparation for the plateau’s temperature extremes and frequent strong winds. Boots with good tread and ankle support are strongly recommended when you want to adventure on Bryce Canyon’s Hiking Trails.
The months of December to February are winter in Bryce Canyon. This season generally experiences the coldest temperatures of the year. It is the slowest tourist season in Bryce Canyon, so those who would like to experience the park while it is less crowded will enjoy visiting during winter. However, the cold temperatures can lead to dangerous, icy conditions. These harsh conditions can lead to trail closures and some activities are not able to be done during winter. Though there are some negative aspects to visiting Bryce Canyon in the winter months, seeing the red rock with a dusting of snow is well worth it.
Temperatures will fluctuate greatly throughout winter in Bryce. Afternoons can be warmer, especially in early winter months. Extreme temperatures can range anywhere from below freezing to over 50 degrees Fahrenheit. However, the average temperature during winter is around 30 degrees Fahrenheit. Late evening and early morning are the coldest times of day during winter. To get a better idea of temperatures during the winter months of Bryce, guests should check the local forecast when they plan to visit.
Snow is common during winters in Bryce, but large accumulations are rare. Usually, there will be a light dusting of snow. It may also rain or freezing rain during winter months, which can turn to ice on untreated walkways and trails. While it can become bothersome, there is nothing more beautiful than a dusting of snow on this scenic landscape.
Preparing for a Bryce Canyon Winter
Visiting Bryce Canyon during winter does present a few challenges. The harsh temperatures can be difficult to handle for those who aren’t used to cold winters. To best prepare for winter weather in Bryce Canyon National Park, guests should carefully consider their packing list. They will want warm, water-resistant outerwear so they can remain comfortable during outdoor activities. Also, sturdy, comfortable boots that are designed for use in ice and snow should be worn during all outdoor activities. Other important items to combat the cold weather are hats, scarfs, gloves, warm base layers, and thick socks. Guests who are well prepared for a winter in Bryce Canyon will find that the winter weather won’t get in the way of a lovely time in the gorgeous outdoors.
From March to May, the cold begins to lift, and Bryce Canyon experiences increased wildlife activity, plant growth, and an increase in visitors. Weather in Bryce Canyon National Park during the spring season varies greatly. So, the weather that will be experienced depends on which month guests will be visiting. Overall, spring is a terrific time of year to visit Bryce Canyon. It is a season of growth, renewal, and beauty that deserves to be experienced by everyone.
The beginning months of spring are like winter in terms of temperatures. While there may be a few warm days late in the season, the temperature tends to be in the high 30s to low 40s. Deeper into spring, temperatures begin to rise consistently. By the end of spring, guests can expect temperatures to be in the mid-50s to high 70s. Since spring temperatures are hard to predict, it is a good idea to check local forecasts and pack cold weather clothing, just in case.
The month with the lowest average rainfall, June, falls during spring. Though it is possible for moderate amounts of rainfall to occur during spring, large amounts of rain are not likely. This makes spring a great time to visit since the chance of having outdoor activities canceled by rain is low. That also means that the chance of dangerous conditions, like flash flooding and high waters, are less likely during spring. For guests who are looking to get away from the wet weather during their vacation, spring is the perfect time to visit Bryce Canyon.
Preparing for a Bryce Canyon Spring
Since the weather can be unpredictable during spring, guests may find that they will need to pack a variety of clothing and outerwear for their trip. Some days, and especially nights, can get cold enough to need heavy outerwear and insulating layers. Other days may be warm enough for just a light jacket. To have the most comfortable visit possible in Bryce Canyon, visitors will want to pack for every weather scenario. Prepared visitors will love the beauty of Bryce Canyon during spring.
The summer months in Bryce Canyon, from June to August, are by far the most popular time of year to visit Bryce Canyon. Summers tend to experience warmer, sunnier weather that attracts visitors from around the world. Those who prefer a quiet vacation may want to avoid the summer months. Though the crowds can be very large, the weather during summer in Bryce is worth dealing with the groups of tourists.
Temperatures during summer can climb into the 90s, but the daytime temperatures tend to hover around the mid-80s. Afternoon in Bryce is the hottest, sunniest time of the day, so avoiding direct sun during this time is advisable. Mornings and evenings are usually cooler, so saving strenuous activities for these times will make being outdoors much more enjoyable. On the rare occasion that temperatures climb to over 100 degrees Fahrenheit, even light outdoor activities can become dangerous. Visitors should be sure to heed temperature warnings to avoid serious injury. The warm and sunny days in Bryce Canyon during the summer make for a wonderful summer vacation.
Rainfall averages vary greatly during summers in Bryce. Some weeks may experience drought, while others will have an abundance of rainfall. August, at the end of summer, has the highest average rainfalls in Bryce Canyon. Large amounts of rainfall can cause dangerous conditions, like flash flooding. Flash flooding is especially dangerous for those who are hiking in canyons since the water can reach dangerous depths in a matter of minutes. By paying attention to weather reports and flood warnings, guests can enjoy their summer vacation in Bryce without worrying about the impact of rainfall.
Preparing for a Bryce Canyon Summer
Visiting Bryce Canyon during the summer means guests must prioritize items that will protect them from the heat and the sun. Clothing that is specially made to wick away sweat and keep the wearer cool is very important when enjoying strenuous activities. Guests will also want plenty of sun protection, such as sunscreen, wide-brimmed hats, UPF clothing, and sunglasses. A light jacket will be nice for early mornings and evenings, but heavy outwear won’t be needed. Visitors who protect themselves from the high temperatures and the sun’s harsh rays will have an unforgettable summer vacation in Bryce Canyon.
Fall, which occurs from September to November, is the most temperate time of year in Bryce Canyon. Crowds also begin to decrease during fall months, so visiting during this season can be more enjoyable and serene. Some foliage in Bryce changes color during the fall, which makes the landscape even more beautiful than usual. A trip to Bryce Canyon during the fall is sure to be an incredible experience.
The average temperatures during the fall range from the high 60s to the low 20s. Temperatures fluctuate throughout the day, with mornings and evenings being much cooler than the afternoon. Because of the mild temperatures, there is no wrong time to explore the outdoors during the fall. However, nights can get very cold, so traveling outdoors after dusk, especially late in the season, may require a heavy coat. Those who prefer a mild outdoor experience will love the weather in Bryce during the fall.
Rainfall is minimal to moderate during fall. There is not usually a large accumulation of rainfall, but the occasional storm is not unheard of. Since temperatures do dip below freezing during these months, snowfall can also occur. Precipitation during fall will not usually cause any issues for visitors, so they can enjoy their trip without interruptions.
Preparing for a Bryce Canyon Fall
Preparing for fall in Bryce Canyon is very similar to the preparations needed for spring. A variety of clothing, outwear, and insulation pieces should be packed. Earlier in the year, guests may not need heavy outerwear, especially if they don’t plan on going out at night. However, later in the season, cold weather gear is a must. When guests are prepared for anything the weather may throw at them, they can get the most out of their vacation during fall in Bryce Canyon.
Experience the Seasons in Bryce Canyon
Every season in Bryce Canyon brings its own unique advantages and disadvantages. Each season is unique, so every guest will be able to choose the perfect time of year to visit. Bryce Canyon weather offers everything from sweltering heat to blistery cold and everything in between. Guests can research the weather in Bryce and prepare for their journey to help create the perfect vacation in a beautiful destination. No matter which season visitors choose to enjoy Bryce Canyon, it will be a magical experience.

In summer, parking at most viewpoints is extremely congested. Your best chance of finding a parking space at Sunrise, Sunset, Inspiration, Bryce, and Paria Viewpoints is before 10:00 a.m. and after 5:00 p.m.
Because all of Bryce Canyon’s viewpoints are east of the main park road, we recommend that you drive the 18-mile road to the southern end of the park, start with Rainbow Point, then stop at the remaining viewpoints on your way back to the park entrance. This will help you to avoid making left turns in front of oncoming traffic.
Due to steep grades and limited parking, trailers are not allowed beyond Sunset Campground. Campers should leave trailers at their campsite. Day visitors should leave trailers at their overnight campground, at Ruby’s Inn free shuttle parking area just outside the park, at the park visitor center or at the trailer turn-around south of Sunset Campground.
