1. Hunter Education
Hunters living in Nevada who were born after January 1, 1960, are required to own a valid hunter education certificate to be eligible to purchase a hunting license in the state. To earn state hunter education certification, hunters must successfully pass a hunter safety course, according to HUNTERcourse.com. The hunter education course in Nevada consists of two parts: a classroom course as well as a Web-based independent study course.

2. Hunting Licenses
Once hunters earn the hunter education certificate, they can apply for purchase of a hunting license. Their next decision is which license to buy. A variety of hunting licenses are offered by the Nevada Department of Wildlife and are based on the type of animal that the hunter will pursue, the agency's website said. There are also licenses available for trapping privileges. Hunters will need to show proof of their hunter safety education certification when they apply for a hunting license.

3. Hunter Orange Recommendation
Nevada sportsmen are not required to wear hunter, or blaze, orange when hunting, but the NDOW strongly recommends that hunters do so for their safety. This recommendation especially applies to upland and big-game hunters, according to the International Hunter Education Association.

4. Age Requirements for Children of Hunters
Sportsmen who wish to bring their kids hunting with them will be pleased to learn that Nevada allows children under age 12 to accompany a parent or guardian on a hunting expedition without a hunting license, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. However, kids may not hunt big-game animals until they are at least 12 years old, and children under age 18 are prohibited from hunting mammals or game birds unless they are accompanied by a parent, guardian, or another authorized adult possessing a hunting permit.
