Dream Tag raffle runs through June

While the big game application process may not start for while, hunters can definitely scratch that itch by buying chances for the hunt of a lifetime with the Nevada Dream Tag raffle.

Five Dream Tags will be awarded in 2015 (Elk, California Bighorn Sheep, Desert Bighorn Sheep, Antelope and Mule Deer). All that is required to get started in the raffle is to first purchase a Resource Enhancement Stamp for $10.

After acquiring the stamp, hunters can purchase an unlimited number of raffle tickets for each species available for $5 each. To buy both the RES Stamp and the raffle tickets, visit NVDreamTag.org.

The Nevada Dream Tag Program is a raffle that allows resident and nonresident sportsmen a chance at the hunt of a lifetime while also contributing to Nevada’s wildlife habitat.

The tags are similar to other western states’ raffle tags and “hunt of a lifetime” tags.

One of the best aspects of this raffle is the ability to purchase tickets for your family and friends. Anyone can go online and purchase their favorite hunter chances at the hunt of a lifetime for any special occasion.

In the past 20 years, wildfires in Nevada have ravaged more than 13 million acres of crucial habitat. In only two years, the Nevada Dream Tag Program has been able to donate a total of $324,200 to habitat projects.

For those not interested in hunting, the Resource Enhancement Stamp can be purchased by anyone that wants to contribute to the preservation, protection, management and restoration of game and its habitat.

Tickets for the Nevada Dream Tag raffle are available now and will be sold until June 30 for this year’s hunting season. The winners will be announced in early July.

The Nevada Department of Wildlife (NDOW) protects, restores and manages fish and wildlife, and promotes fishing, hunting, and boating safety. NDOW’s wildlife and habitat conservation efforts are primarily funded by sportsmen’s license and conservation fees and a federal surcharge on hunting and fishing gear.

Support wildlife and habitat conservation in Nevada by purchasing a hunting, fishing, or combination license. For information, visit http://www.ndow.org.
