Tag Fees

In Nevada big game seasons are established for antelope, black bear, deer, elk, bighorn sheep, mountain goat, and mountain lion. Tags for all game species, except mountain lion, are awarded through a random, computerized tag draw process held in late May. Mountain lion tags are available over the counter at Nevada license agents, online at ndowlicensing.com, and at Department offices statewide. Mountain lion season is open year-round.

Qualifications for a Resident License

A person is considered a resident of the State of Nevada if they are a citizen of the U.S. or entered the country lawfully and has resided with a permanent residence within the state for six months next preceding the application or purchase a license. Permanent residence does not include merely owning a residence within the State.

A full-time student attending an institution of higher learning within the State is eligible for a resident license if they did not purchase a resident license from any other state. (NRS 502.015)

Military Stationed in Nevada

Any member of the Armed Forces of the U.S. who has been assigned permanent duty within the State of Nevada qualifies for resident status. Spouses and dependents under the age of 21 are allowed the same privilege. (NRS 502.070)
