Landowners in Nevada can allow hunting on their property, but Nevada Department of Wildlife (NDOW) restrictions apply. The laws are similar to those for hunting on public lands, including licensing and seasonal requirements. However, any special situations can be addressed through the department. There are a few things landowners should know about allowing hunting on their property in Nevada.

1. It is legal to hunt on private lands, but hunters must have the permission of the landowner to come onto the premises and to hunt.

2. Hunters must have a valid license (and any applicable tags) to hunt on private land – m just like what is necessary for hunting on public lands. 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 when it comes to hunting, such as what seasons are in place for specific game, and abiding by the rules set forth regarding endangered and threatened species. One benefit is that an unlimited number of tags can be purchased for use on private land with some restrictions, according to gohunt.com.

4. Throughout the state, hunting hours begin 30 minutes before sunrise and end at sunset for all big game hunts.

5. Landowners can also partner with the state to ensure the preservation or restoration of wildlife habitats, which provide for present and future game availability. Through the Landowner Incentive Program (LIP), public resources can be allocated to making improvements on private lands. The focus of the plan is to address wildlife habitat issues while ensuring the viability of working ranches and farms. Interested landowners can apply for technical and financial assistance, any time of year. A LIP coordinator will discuss options and help landowners through the process of becoming part of this program, which protects wildlife for the near and distant future.
