Welcome to Nevada
Welcome to Nevada
may be, there is a good chance Nevada has something rightup your alley.These opportunities didn’t just happen overnight. NDOWstaff work countless hours managing the State’s gameresources and sportsmen’s groups and volunteers help
support these programs both nancially and through sweat
equity. The success of our program is a testament to whathappens when everyone works towards a common goal.We are reminded on almost a daily basis of the dedicationand passion of both NDOW staff and Nevada’s sportsmen.It is also important to remember that everyone has achance to have their say when it comes to Nevada’s wildlife.I encourage you to participate in this process. Attend your local County Board to Manage Wildlife meeting and getinvolved. Remember, Nevada’s wildlife belongs to all of us.As you read this year’s hunting guide, remember thismagazine is meant to be your quick-reference to huntingin Nevada. It includes season dates, quotas and crucialregulations that every sportsman needs to know beforeheading out. However, this publication contains only brief explanations of the hunting laws in this state. We recommendchecking out our website (www.ndow.org) or calling your local
NDOW ofce if you have any questions.
Once you have checked out what the Silver Statehas to offer, I encourage you to get out there and see for 
yourself how many outstanding opportunities are availableto sportsmen in this state.
As always, I sincerely hope that your days aeld this
year are the best ever.Sincerely,Kenneth E. Mayer, Acting Director 
Fellow hunters,
If hunting in Nevada is “old hat” to you, then you alreadyknow about the wide range of opportunities that are out there.Opening this hunting guide is just an exciting reminder of theadventures that await you this year.
If, however, this is your rst time considering hunting
in the Silver State, you picked a good time to check usout. The Nevada Department of Wildlife (NDOW) releasedits annual Big Game Status Book in early May and gamebiologists believe that nearly every species of big gameanimal experienced an increase in population this past year.This is a testament to the hard work these men and womenput in day-in and day-out. The tireless work of our Game,
Wildlife Diversity and Habitat Divisions benet both game
and non-game species in Nevada.The State offers a wide variety of big game huntingopportunities, such as producing trophy deer, elk, antelopeand bighorn sheep. Nevada is one of the few states thatallows hunters the opportunity to hunt three sub-species of sheep (desert, rocky mountain and California.) This is also
the rst year Nevada will open up a black bear hunt. If you
are looking to hunt mountain lion, we have one of the mostliberal lion hunting programs in the west with tags availableyear-round and over-the-counter.If big game isn’t your thing, Nevada is home to somefantastic upland game and migratory bird hunting as well.You could try your hand at chukar hunting. Some huntersswear that this clever bird laughs at you as it rockets backdown the mountain you just spent 30 minutes climbing.The Ruby Mountains are still the only place in the WesternHemisphere where you can hunt Himalayan snowcock.From quail to dove to blue and ruffed grouse; there is a goodchance Nevada has what you are looking for. When it comesto hunting waterfowl in Nevada, I honestly believe it may beone of the best kept secrets in the West, especially before itfreezes. The bottom line is, whatever your hunting interests
