The Nevada Division of Wildlife reports that there are still a large number of big game hunting tags remaining for any interested hunters, following the first computerized drawing process for the various 2000 Nevada big game hunting seasons. That computer drawing was conducted by Systems Consultants of Fallon, a private contractor hired to conduct the annual drawings.
There are 6,368 resident and 11 non-resident tags still available through a second drawing application process which is currently underway.
The available resident tags are:
- 2,723 tags for junior hunter mule deer tags (either sex)
- 2,258 tags for rifle antlerless mule deer
- 1,307 tags for archery buck mule deer
- 69 tags for archery antlerless Rocky Mountain Elk
- 9 tags for archery antelope (horns longer than ears).
- 2 tags for muzzleloader buck mule deer
All remaining resident and non-resident tags are available only through the application process.
All applications for those tags must be received, through an authorized postal service, by no later than 5 p.m. on July 3 at the Hunt Application Office in Fallon.
Results of the second drawing will be provided by July 21.
