Small Game Hunt Questionnaires

Hunting Regulations Icon Nevada Hunting

The small game hunt questionnaire (upland game birds, rabbits and waterfowl) can be found online in February of each year at www.ndowlicensing.com. Even though this is a voluntary questionnaire, we encourage those sportsmen that pursue these species to do their best to track their hunting excursions in terms of number of days hunted, what county they hunted in and how many animals were taken. These surveys typically close around the end of April or mid-May. This information is instrumental in helping the Nevada Department of Wildlife determine harvest estimates each year and make recommendations for upcoming seasons and bag limits.

The Nevada furbearer harvest questionnaire can be found online in May of each year at www.ndowlicensing.com. This questionnaire must be completed by May 31st. Any person who obtains a trapping license must complete the questionnaire whether or not they harvested or participated in any furbearer harvest activities. Failure to submit your questionnaire will result in suspension of trapping privileges for one year.

The Nevada Swan Questionnaire can be found online at www.ndowlicensing.com. This questionnaire should be completed by January 31 of each year. Though this is a voluntary questionnaire, federal regulations stipulate that if Nevada does not receive a minimum of 80% return rate on questionnaires, the state’s swan permit allocation the following year will be reduced by 10%.

In addition to these groups of species, sportsmen who receive a turkey tag must submit a harvest return card. Regardless of harvest, the questionnaire must be received by November 30, 2018 for 2018 fall hunts and by May 31, 2019 for the spring hunt in 2019. A person who fails to return the questionnaire by this date will be denied all turkey tags for one year.
