SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — State wildlife biologists are again proposing a ban on the use of trail cameras in hunting a few months after they pulled the proposal to further survey hunters after some initial backlash. reports the plan proposed by the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources on Tuesday calls for a ban on trail cameras or any other non-handheld transmitting devices used for the purposes of hunting between the end of July and end of January every year.
