Go after THEM Coyotes

Posted by on Monday, 4 April, 2011

The Fawn/Doe ratio for Nevada Mule Deer is still under 0.50/1:00 and yet this is the best it has been in quite some time. Therefore, you are strongly urged to kill as many Nevada coyotes as you possibly can. Residents and non-residents may hunt Nevada coyotes without a license.

Apply for a Mule Deer tag in Nevada

Posted by on Monday, 4 April, 2011

The dealine for applying to obtain a Nevada Mule Deer tag is April 18. To obtain a bonus point you must purchase a license and pay a $10 bonus point fee if applying for a bonus point only. The deer tag is $240. Other fees include a predator fee of $3 and an application fee of $3.50. Tag quotas are up a little from last year. There is a chance of drawing a tag with zero bonus points. If you fail to submit a harvest report you will skip a year being able to apply for a tag.

New Mexico slides Application Date Forward

Posted by on Saturday, 2 April, 2011

On March 24, New Mexico sent out a letter, informing hunters of a change in the application date. I’m sure many hunters were caught unaware. I was, and I apologize to you, the subscribers. The new date was March 28 and is now past. We will watch this a little closer next year. Better Luck Next Year.

New Mexico claims they moved the date forward to allow hunters to take advantage of the lower license costs, since April 1 (April Fools Day) begins the 2011 licence year. Fees are $290 and $375 for standard and quality tags, respectively.  These fees do not include the Habitat stamp. Anyone applying for any public draw deer license, must pay the full license fee plus the nonrefundable application fee when applying. Unsuccessful applicants will receive refunds for the license fee. The new nonrefundable application fees are $20 for nonresidents.

The Mule Deer drawing is subject to a quota system.  78 percent of the licenses go to New Mexico residents, 12 percent to nonresidents who’ve contracted with an outfitter and 10 percent to nonresidents who have not contracted with an outfitter .

Note that it is necessary to have reported your harvest for the prior year or your application gets rejected. This is a sign of things to come.
