Big game tags still available

Hunters who did not draw a mule deer tag in Nevada’s recently completed second draw still have a chance to go hunting this fall. Results of the second draw were provided July 19, along with information on remaining tags. All remaining tags are on sale on a first-come, first-served basis.

Mule deer hunters will find tags remaining in several hunt categories and units. Sixty-five tags are available for the Resident Mule Deer Antlerless Any Legal Weapon Hunt (Hunt 1181) in hunt units 101, 102, 109. Archers who would like to hunt antlered (buck) mule deer have a chance at 317 Mule Deer Antlered Longbow Hunt (Hunt 1341) tags, with 296 of those available in hunt units 101-109 Early and 21 tags available in hunt units 171-173. Resident youth hunters still have a great opportunity for tags with 209 tags remaining for the Junior Mule Deer Either Sex Hunt (Hunt 1107) in a variety of hunt units throughout the state.

Hunters interested in applying for any of these tags can apply online at or by mail to Wildlife Administrative Services Office (WASO), P.O. Box 1345, Fallon, Nevada 89407-1345. WASO will only accept those applications received through the mail until 5 p.m., and through the Internet until 11 p.m. seven weekdays prior to the close of the season for the tag on Oct. 24.
