Nevada Hunt Application Deadline

This entry was posted by on Friday, 11 April, 2008 at


April 21, 2008 is the deadline to apply for limited quota mule deer tags
in Nevada. Drawing results will be available June 20, online.

A sign of things to come, the Nevada Department of Wildlife is not mailing out
Proclamations and Applications beginning this year. If you applied for a mule deer hunt last year, you should have already recieved a postcard informing you of the need to go online.

For several years now, it has been required that you purchase a license in order to obtain a preference point. A non-resident can hunt coyotes and jacks in Nevada without a license, so if you don’t draw a tag, having one is of little value other than for a preference point.

Beware. When I applied online last year, I was given the option to have my license
money refunded if I didn’t draw a tag, which option I selected. Somehow, I still ended up with a license ( a 2008 license, at that ), and my credit card was hit for the amount of the license – which was not my intent.

Application fees:

  • There is a $10.00 non-refundable application fee for all big game hunts,except Rocky Mountain elk, which is $15.00.
  • A non-refundable $3 predator management fee is assessed on each tagapplication.
  • There is a $2.00 non-refundable application fee for resident applicationssubmitted online, and a $3.50 non-refundable application fee for non-resident
    applications submitted online.
  • Hunters who do not draw tags will receive full refunds, excluding the non-refundable application fees.
