Hunting in Nevada offers opportunities on both public and private lands, and hunters who go out on private lands will experience benefits and frustrations unique to hunting on private property. Special considerations should be given to the following:

1. Hunters must have the permission of the landowner before entering private property. When seeking permission, ownership can be easy to find, especially when houses or businesses are set up on the property. In difficult cases, however, a trip to the county land use office or an online search may be needed to find the owners of specific lands.

2. Even when hunting on private lands, hunters must have a valid license (and any applicable tags) to hunt. The NDOW publishes helpful information sheets that address specific regulations that apply to hunting each species. The sheets cover hunting limits, tagging rules, and more.

3. Private lands are subject to the same regulations as public lands, including restricting activities to coincide with seasons set for specific game, and respecting endangered and threatened species. However, an unlimited number of tags can be purchased for use on private land, according to gohunt.com. Some species restrictions may apply.

4. Hunting on private land can present nuisances. These include noises made by ATVs or other vehicles on or near the property, or overcrowded parking space.

5. Not all property owners behave similarly towards hunters. Some friendly property owners are apt to give permission to hunt to too many people. Others are very selective about who the let hunt on their property. Use common sense when dealing with landowners, and always conduct yourself with respect and appreciation for the opportunity. Whenever possible, cement your relationship and show your appreciation by helping the ranchers with a task, sending a holiday card, or giving a small gift. These acts go a long way in preserving your welcome on the property, notes Live Outdoors.
