Partnership in Wildlife (PIW) Hunts (CR 17-08)

Partnership in Wildlife (PIW) is a voluntary and optional participation program that offers unique hunting opportunities to hunters for a few statewide big game tags. A person with a PIW tag may hunt in any unit with an open season for the species listed on the tag, during the season dates when that unit is open for that species, and only with the weapon authorized to be used during that open season.

Application Instructions

Applicants who are eligible and apply for hunts in the first big game drawing of the year can apply for PIW hunts at the same time. Marking the PIW box for the same species you applied for in the first drawing will let us know that you want to participate in the PIW drawing for some very special tags. (Doe, antlerless elk, depredation and junior hunt applicants are not eligible for PIW hunts.) The PIW tag fee is $10 for each species applied for. If successful for a PIW hunt tag, the entire tag fee the participant submitted with their main draw application will pay for the PIW tag. If unsuccessful in the PIW draw, $10 will be placed in the Wildlife Heritage Trust Account. The remainder of the tag fee received from an unsuccessful applicant for a big game tag will be refunded to the applicant.

Funds Benefit Wildlife Heritage Trust

The funds donated through PIW are placed in the Wildlife Heritage Trust Account. According to NRS 501.3575, 75 percent of the money deposited in this account in the previous year and the total interest earned on the account during the previous year, may be used by the Department annually for the protection, propagation, restoration, transplantation, introduction and management of any game fish, mammal, bird or furbearing mammal and the management and control of predatory wildlife in the state. The Board of Wildlife Commissioners is responsible for reviewing and approving expenditures from the account.

Every year wildlife management projects are funded through this account. PIW promises to benefit both Nevada’s wildlife and the sportsmen by providing additional financial support for game management programs and providing a hunting opportunity that would not otherwise be available to most sportsmen in Nevada.
