Falconry License

A person must possess a valid falconer’s license when practicing falconry. A person who releases a raptor at game birds or game animals during the open season must also possess a valid hunting license.

HIP Number

Any person, except a Nevada resident under 12, who plans to hunt any kind of migratory game bird, including ducks, geese, swans, coots, dove, snipe, or moorhens in Nevada this year, is required to ANNUALLY obtain a Harvest Information Program (HIP) validation number and write it on their hunting license before entering the field. The validation number is free and is available by simply calling 1-866-703-4605 or go online to www.ndowlicensing.com. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is conducting the nationwide harvest survey. Additionally, NDOW would like migratory bird hunters to complete an online questionnaire at the conclusion of the season.

Practice of Falconry

When practicing falconry on game species, a falconry licensee shall comply with the provisions of title 45 of NRS and all regulations of the Commission. A species of wildlife which is classified as protected and further classified as threatened or endangered by the Commission, or as threatened or endangered by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service, that is taken incidentally by a raptor may not be retained or possessed by a falconry licensee and the falconry licensee shall report the taking to the United States Fish and Wildlife Service not later than 72 hours after the taking. A species of wildlife which is classified as a game species by the Department that is taken incidentally by a raptor during the closed season may not be retained or possessed by the falconry licensee, except that the falconry licensee may allow the raptor to feed on the game species. A falconry licensee shall not intentionally release a raptor after any wildlife which is in a refuge or in a state or national park or is on privately owned property where the falconry licensee does not have permission to hunt. A falconry licensee may fly a raptor at an animal raised in captivity and at any species of bird that is not listed as a protected species by the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, as amended, 16 U.S.C. §§ 703 et seq. (Note: A complete list of falconry regulations can be found at www.ndow.org under the “Laws & Regulations” section.)
