Nonresident Guided Hunt Deer Tags

There are 100 licensed master guides in Nevada that provide guide services for big game, game birds, game fish and unprotected wildlife. Different hunters often desire to hire a guide for different reasons, ranging from a novice hunter who is a little uncomfortable with trekking into the remote Nevada outback, to an experienced hunter, who draws the tag of a lifetime, like a desert bighorn or bull elk tag.

When booking a guided hunt be sure that the master guide you hire is licensed to provide guide service in Nevada and be sure that you are provided with a contract before services are provided. If you are a nonresident of Nevada you may participate in the nonresident restricted guided deer draw, a program that allots a number of tags specifically for a guided deer hunt.
