Elk Incentive Tags

Special elk incentive tags are awarded to landowner applicants as an incentive to support an increase in the elk populations in Nevada. Any owner, lessee or manager of private land who wishes to participate in the program may enter into an agreement with the Department that specifies how the landowner will support increases in the local elk herds, and provides that the landowner will agree to provide reasonable public access to adjacent public lands.

Landowners or hunters who are interested in the elk incentive tag program may contact the Nevada Department of Wildlife Headquarters at (775) 688-1507 for more information.

Landowner Damage Compensation Tags

An owner, lessee or manager of private land in this state may apply to the Department for the issuance of deer or antelope tags for compensation for damage caused by these animals. These tags can be used by the owner, lessee or manager if he holds a valid Nevada hunting license or the tag(s) can be sold to any holder of a valid Nevada Hunting license at any price mutually agreed upon. Any landowner, lessee or manager of private land or any hunter wanting more information on this program should call (775) 688-1507. Please visit the “Incentive and Compensation Maps” page on the NDOW website
