Hunting in Nevada: 3 Animals to Hunt Year-round

By    |   Tuesday, 02 June 2015 03:25 PM

Hunting in Nevada is very comfortable year-round, and hunters can pursue a variety of species, including big game, birds and small game. The seasons vary for each species, and information about each is available on the Nevada Department of Wildlife (NDOW). Anyone hunting in Nevada should be aware of its seasonal hunting structure.

Hunting in Nevada is open to residents and non-residents; but limitations apply. Specific season dates can differ for nonresidents, so check the NDOW website before planning your hunt. Unprotected species can be hunted without a hunting license by both residents and nonresidents, but a trapping license is required to trap them, or to sell furs, regardless of method of capture.

In addition to NDOW regulations, counties have imposed laws that apply to hunters. Check with your sheriff's office or with the NDOW if you have any questions.

Although hunters can find something to hunt throughout the year, fall and winter months offer the most opportunities, and a few unprotected species can be hunted throughout the year.

1. Black-tailed Jackrabbit
The black-tailed jackrabbit lives in extreme environments, including the deserts of Nevada. Jackrabbits are recognized by their huge ears, and they produce up to four litters a year, making them a nuisance to many communities. Oddly enough, despite its name, this species is actually a hare, not a rabbit. Jackrabbits can run more than 35 miles per hour, and can weigh as much as 13 pounds, with females tending to be larger than males. They eat grasses, shrubs, twigs, and even cactus, and can be destructive to farmland.

2. Snakes
Hunting in Nevada can include several snakes, many of which are found in the deserts. Check with county authorities through the NDOW or the local sheriff's offices for laws and restrictions governing snake hunts.

3. Coyotes
An unprotected animal in Nevada, Coyotes can be hunted throughout the year without a hunting license. Hunters should check with local authorities to learn about restrictions as firearm usage laws vary throughout the state. Coyotes are amazingly adaptable, and have become problems in several areas.
