Tag Allocation and Application Hunt Committee

This Committee, which convened most recently during the period of December 2006 until it was disbanded in March 2008, has now been reactivated.

Committee Purpose: the purpose of the committee is to review issues of tag allocation based on sound biological and sociological principles, evaluate potential changes to the application hunt and draw processes, and make recommendations to the Board of Wildlife Commissioners regarding their research and findings. (For more details, see Charter and Commission Policy 24).


From 2006 through 2008 the TAAHC developed a TAAHC topic list- (2006-2008 Version), based on input from CWABs and the public. A new TAAHC topic list will be developed in the near future.

The work previously accomplished by the Committee was comprehensive and informative. That work is reflected in the historic documents linked below.

FINAL REPORT - “Mule Deer Hunting and Management: Experiences, Attitudes and Preferences of Nevada’s Mule deer Tag Applicants.” In January 2014 researchers in the College of Natural Resources at the University of Idaho in Moscow, Idaho, in cooperation with this committee and the Department, began an effort to survey 1,200 randomly-selected hunters who had applied for mule deer tags in 2012 and 2013. The results of that survey were presented to the Board of Wildlife Commissioners on May 9, 2014.
