Applications due for hunt reservations at Overton and Key Pittman

The Nevada Department of Wildlife is accepting applications for hunting reservations from those who want to hunt during the first two days of the 2018 duck and goose seasons at the Overton Wildlife Management Area or opening day at the Key Pittman WMA. Those dates are Oct. 27 and 28 at the Overton WMA and Oct. 13 at Key Pittman WMA.  

To apply for reservations, hunters must complete and submit an official paper application that is available online at www.ndow.org or at NDOW offices in Las Vegas or Henderson. Only complete and legible applications will be accepted. Completed applications must be delivered through a postal service to the NDOW Headquarters Office, 6980 Sierra Center Parkway, Suite 120 in Reno. They are due no later than 5 p.m. September 12. 

A public drawing will be held at 10 a.m. September 26 at the same address. Successful applicants will be notified by mail.  

NDOW will begin taking reservations for the remainder of the waterfowl hunting season at the Overton WMA the Monday prior to opening day. Those reservations must be made in person (or by a representative) at the NDOW Las Vegas office or at the management area. All reservations, including those acquired through the mail-in application process, must be used prior to reserving another hunt day.  

At Key Pittman WMA, reservations for hunting are required only on the opening day of the regular duck and goose seasons.
