Sportsmen interested in applying for the first bear hunt in Nevada’s history are reminded that applications are now being accepted online.

Wildlife Administrative Services says you only have until 5 p.m., May 13 to apply at and paper applications are not available.

The results of the draw will be provided on or before June 13.

Information will not be given over the phone until that day and the draw reports will be available at the Wildlife Administrative Services Office, and Nevada Department of Wildlife (NDOW) offices in Elko, Ely, Fallon, Las Vegas, Henderson, Reno and Winnemucca on or before June 13.

The "any legal weapon" hunt is for both residents and nonresidents, and will run from Aug. 20 – Dec. 31 or until the harvest objective is met. The Nevada Board of Wildlife Commissioners set the tag quota at 45 and a harvest limit not to exceed 20 bears, of which only six can be females.

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.
