Nevada Department of Wildlife requires hunters of migratory birds to register for a Harvest Information Program validation number.
The Harvest Information Program provides estimates of the number of migratory birds harvested throughout the country. Migratory birds include doves, ducks, geese, swans and snipe.
Hunters age 12 or older are required to display HIP numbers on hunting licensees. Registration is free, and numbers can be obtained by calling 866-703-4605 or online at www.ndowlicensing.com.
