Hunters interested in applying for Nevada's big game tags, can begin the online application at 8 a.m. on Friday, March 19 when it goes live on www.huntnevada.com. Hunters that applied online in the past will be sent a postcard reminding them it is time to apply. Those hunters who applied on paper through the mail will be sent a pre-printed application. Otherwise, paper applications will only be available at NDOW offices and online.

This year's application deadline is Monday, April 19. Applications must be received, either via mail or online, by 5 p.m., to be eligible for the drawing. Hunters will be officially notified of the draw results by Friday, June 18. However, a new 48-hour notification process allows initial tag draw results to be posted online at www.huntnevada.com within 48 hours of the actual draw, which is usually held in late May.

While they are waiting for the application period to open, hunters can review hunt choices in the 2010 Big Game Seasons and Application Regulations book, which are posted online and also available at license agents statewide. Sporting goods stores, hardware stores and grocery stores that are license agent vendors for NDOW received shipments of the Big Game Application Regulation this week.

NDOW will once again hold tag application workshops in Las Vegas (March 22 and March 31) and Reno (March 25). The workshops include information on Nevada's big game management, tag quotas and allocations, draw odds, and bonus points. NDOW staff will explain common application errors, the computerized draw system and any new procedures or regulations for this year's drawing.

When selecting a hunt, it is always important to do your homework and know what to expect from the units you are applying for. The NDOW website is a valuable tool with several resources to help sportsmen select the right hunts. In an effort to make things easier, NDOW has placed the Top 10 Big Game Tag Application Resources on one page. The page includes maps, hunter information sheets, bonus point tables and hunt statistics and draw odds.
