Hunting in Nevada: 14 Animals to Hunt in the Winter

By    |   Saturday, 30 May 2015 11:28 AM

Hunting in Nevada is comfortable in the winter months because of the state's temperate weather, and hunters can pursue a variety of species, including big and small game and birds.

The seasons vary for each species, and information about each is available on the Nevada Department of Wildlife. To participate in big game hunts in the state, hunters must have tags, which are attained through random draws and are open to hunters 12 years old and older. The tags help control the number of animals shot each season to keep the population at its best level for the area it inhabits. Applications are available in spring, with information on the website in mid-March.

Beavers, Muskrat, Mink, and Rabbits
These animals are plentiful in Nevada, but hunters who sell raw furs for profit must have a trapping license.

Grouse, Quail, and Other Small Game
Seasons for each animal vary, so consult the DOW website to learn about specific dates and licenses needed.

Ducks and Geese
Migratory birds look for landing spots that suit their needs and the rainfall statistics for a given area directly relate to availability of these birds. Dry ponds do not attract ducks and geese, so monitor the rainfall and waterfall to evaluate bird lands, the Nevada DOW advises. A call to the local DOW agency can help you locate top spots – when the weather cooperates.
