Tags for all game species except mountain lion are allocated through a random computerized tag draw system held in early June.

Qualifications for Resident Licenses

A person is considered to be a resident of the State of Nevada if he is a citizen of, or is lawfully entitled to remain in, the United States, and during the six months next preceding his application to the Department for a license, tag or permit, he maintained his principal and permanent residence in this State; was physically present in this State, except for temporary absences; and did not purchase or apply for any resident license, tag or permit to hunt, fish or trap in another state, country or province. A person who does not maintain his principal and permanent residence in Nevada but who is attending an institution of higher learning in this State as a full-time student is eligible for a resident license, tag or permit if, during the six months next preceding his application to the Department for a license, tag or permit, he/she: was physically present in Nevada, except for temporary trips outside of the State, and did not purchase or apply for any resident license, tag or permit to hunt, fish or trap in another state, country or province. A resident license, tag or permit issued by this State is void if the person to whom it was issued establishes or maintains his principal and permanent residence in and obtains any hunting, fishing or trapping privilege or entitlement conditional on residency from another state, country or province. Principal and permanent residence means a place where a person is legally domiciled and maintains a permanent habitation in which he lives. The term does not include merely owning a residence in the state (NRS 502.015).

Military Stationed in Nevada

Any member of the Armed Forces of the United States who has been assigned to permanent duty, as opposed to temporary or casual duty, within the State of Nevada qualifies for all necessary hunting or fishing licenses, tags or permits for fishing, hunting or trapping in the State of Nevada. A like privilege must be extended to spouses and dependents, under the age of 21, of such members of the Armed Forces. All such licenses, tags or permits must be issued on the same terms and conditions and at the same costs as licenses, tags or permits are issued to Nevada residents, except that the 6 months’ residence requirement must be waived (Per NRS 502.070).

License Simplification

Not only have the licensing options been consolidated into four general classes, which now include all state stamps and privileges without additional fees, but licenses will also be valid for 365 days from the date of purchase and eligible for auto-renewal.
