About Hunting in Nevada

Nevada is the perfect state for hunting many different types of game. It’s true that most of Nevada is desert, but don’t forget the Sierra Nevada mountain range that runs down the western border of California! Coyote hunting is not regulated here due to the population thriving.

Big game in Nevada: Elk, mule deer, black bears, pronghorn antelope, and mountain lions.

Small game in Nevada that you don’t need a license to hunt: ground squirrels, raccoons, skunks, jackrabbits.
