Second Chance for Big Game Hunters(1)

If you did not draw a big game tag in the recently completed main draw, don’t give up just yet. There are still tags available for the upcoming second draw.

The second draw application process will open tomorrow (June 9) at 8 a.m. The Wildlife Administrative Services Office will accept applications received through the mail until 5 p.m. and through the internet until 11 p.m. on Monday, June 26.  Applications may be submitted online at www.huntnevada.com or by mail to Wildlife Administrative Services Office, PO Box 1345, Fallon, Nevada 89407-1345.

Archery mule deer tags are available to both resident and nonresident hunters. If your son or daughter failed to draw a tag there is still a good amount of resident junior mule deer tags left for the second draw as well. A breakdown of the remaining tags available can be found on the NDOW website at www.ndow.org/Hunt/Applications/.  

Final results of the second draw will be provided by Friday, July 21. Any tags remaining after the second draw will be sold on a first come, first served basis.

For more information on the second draw or remaining tags call the Wildlife Administrative Services Office at 1-800-576-1020 or look on the web at huntnevada.com.
