Utah DWR License Pricing Structure
The pricing for hunting and fishing licenses in Utah encorporates several forms of bundling. The most obvious form of bundlng is the fishing or small game hunting license. The one permit lets you hunt or fish for a variety of species. Another form of bundling is the small game/fishing combination license. When purchased seperately, the total cost for the two permits would be $52.oo. However, the combination permit is only $30.oo. This seems like an amazing savings, but the DWR probably makes much more money overall because the price is low enough to get people that may never fish, or may never hunt to buy the other license just in case. The last form of bundling I want to discuss is that they don't allow you to buy a big game permit without purchasing the small game permit. This is kind of a form of mixed bundling. It's interesting to see how this occurs in government agencies as well as in the private sector.
