2016 Big Game Seasons

Hunting Regulations Icon Nevada Hunting

CR 15-09, Amendment #2

Limits and Hours

The limit is one and the hunting hours are one-half hour before sunrise to sunset for all big game hunts, unless otherwise specified.

Important: The quotas listed are those from last year (2015). Big game quotas will not be set until the May 2016 Commission meeting in order to accommodate the most current data on big game herds. A ? (question mark) in the 2015 quota column denotes no previous quota available. New hunts, dates or units added to a hunt are marked in bold italics.

Note: Standard dates for opening and closing of seasons are set by calendar date and not based on Saturday opening and Sunday closing day.

What’s New for the 2016 Big Game Seasons

Nonresident Desert Bighorn Ewe Hunts: Four units will have a nonresident quota for desert bighorn ewes. Tag fee will be the same as a nonresident bighorn ram tag.

Combination Antlerless Elk Management Tags: This program will continue for 2016 where if you apply for certain mule deer buck or bull elk hunts (archery, muzzleloader or rifle), you have the opportunity to apply for an additional antlerless elk tag, allowing you to harvest a cow elk along with a buck or bull on your primary tag during the same season dates.

Hunt Unit Advisories

In an effort to improve your hunting experience, the Nevada Department of Wildlife has put together a table of 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 2016 Hunt Unit Advisory on the NDOW website at
