Attention Junior Hunters!

Antlered Only: Most of the Junior mule deer hunts are now antlered only except for the following unit groups 061, 062, 064, 066-068; 071 – 079, 091; and 101- 109, which will remain antlered or antlerless.

Juniors and Bonus Points: An 11-year-old junior hunter who will turn 12 before the beginning of the last junior hunt season is eligible to purchase a bonus point.

Helicopters and your Hunt

Each year, the Nevada Department of Wildlife conducts about 1,000 hours of surveys with two Department helicopters to determine the productivity and distribution of wildlife species from mule deer to eagles. Wildlife surveys are essential to harvest regulation, and the Department strives to avoid conducting surveys during hunting seasons. Unfortunately, due to weather and demands associated with optimal survey timing, the Department sometimes must conduct surveys during seasons when a hunt may be ongoing. We are asking hunters to recognize that a survey may occur during any open hunting season, although the Department will strive to avoid this to the best extent possible.

Party Hunts and Bonus Points

Party hunt members are able to return their party tag to the Department but will not receive their bonus points back unless all members of the party also return their tags to the Department.

Active Members of the Armed Forces

Active members in the Armed Forces who are stationed outside of the U.S. and lose their bonus points due to a lapse in applying may now be refunded their lost points after they return to the country. (NAC 502.4187)
