Can Have Multiple Tags Per Species

Specialty tags provide enhanced opportunities for hunters to experience the thrill of the chase outside of the conventional constraints set for the big game units and seasons. Not only are hunters rewarded with the potential for a hunt of a lifetime, but revenues generated from specialty tags are deposited into specific accounts designated solely for wildlife conservation projects that help the habitats, species and ultimately citizens of Nevada. Specialty tags may be awarded through the application and draw process or purchased through an event auction and provide the tag holder perks that include but are not limited to longer season structures, potential to obtain multiple tags in a year for a single species, the ability to utilize any open unit of our great state, and no loss of bonus points for the acquisition of a tag.

An applicant can only obtain one tag per species, this includes Partnership in Wildlife (PIW) and Silver State tags. A person can be awarded and purchase a tag of the same species outside of the draw, this includes the Heritage and Dream tag options. Winners of the Dream tag must return their Department awarded tag only if both the Dream and Department tag match in species and category. Ex) A person may keep their Antlerless Elk tag if they are the winner of the Antlered Elk Dream tag. A person must return their Antlered Elk tag if they are the winner of the Antlered Elk Dream tag.

Alternate or party hunt options are not available for any specialty tag. Specialty tag quotas are not restricted by residency except PIW mule deer.
