Big Game Seasons and Application Regulations

Important Information
The Process to Obtain an Alternate Tag is Changing In 2012 over 600 tags were returned to the Department prior to the start of the season. Most of these returned tags were not reissued. In an effort to give move hunters the opportunity to hunt big game, we are changing the process! During the online application process an applicant would affirm their willingness to be an alternate and accept an alternate tag by marking a check-off box on each species they are applying for. For example: When someone applies for an antelope tag, they will be able to check a box that affirms “If I am unsuccessful I will accept an alternate tag if it becomes available and (the/ my) charge card will be charged immediately”. If you are unsuccessful in drawing an antelope tag you are automatically on the alternate list for the choices on your application. To learn more check out NAC 502.4175 Application for tag or bonus point; fees (Page 12). Pre-Register Your Hunter Education The Department offers pre-registration of hunter education. The Department recommends hunters check to see if their hunter education records are on file. You can do so by going to www.huntnevada.com. Call 1-800-576-1020 to confirm your faxed records are received before April 8, 2013. Changes to Party Applications Starting in 2013 party applications will be allowed for mule deer, antlerless elk and horns shorter than ears antelope. There are separate forms for these hunts. Learn more on page 19. Check Out the Nevada Dream Tags The Nevada Dream Tags Program (page 47) is a raffle that allows resident and nonresident sportsmen a chance at the hunt of a lifetime, while contributing to wildlife habitat restoration in the Silver State. To learn more or to purchase Nevada Dream Tags go to www.NVDreamTag.org. Hunt Unit Advisories In an effort to improve your hunting experience, the Nevada Department of Wildlife has put together a table for hunter access restrictions and other advisories for specific hunts and unit groups. This information may affect your decision on where to apply this year. You can find the 2013 Hunt Unit Advisory on the NDOW website at www.ndow.org. Postcards Hunters who applied online last year will receive a notification postcard reminding them it is time to apply online for big game. Hunters will be able to go to www.huntnevada.com to look up their bonus points and species eligibility and access an online link to download this application regulation brochure. Hunt Unit Changes Several changes have been made to the hunt unit boundaries this year. Hunters are advised to closely check the Hunt Unit Reference Map found in the middle of this publication. Specific changes can be found on the boundary unit descriptions on the back of the map and a brief explanation of each change will be included on affected hunt unit advisories found on the NDOW website.
