From the Nevada Department of Wildlife - Dream Tags give sportsmen another chance
So this year’s big game tag results came out and you didn’t draw a tag. If you still want a shot at an antelope, California bighorn sheep, deer, desert (Nelson) bighorn sheep or elk tag…you still have a chance…lot’s of them.
The Nevada Dream Tag raffle tickets will continue to be sold until June 30. The raffle allows resident and nonresident sportsmen a chance at the hunt of a lifetime while also contributing to Nevada’s wildlife habitat. The tags are similar to other western states’ raffle tags and "hunt of a lifetime" tags.
All that is required to get started in the raffle is to first purchase a Resource Enhancement Stamp (RES) for $10. Once you have your stamp, you can purchase an unlimited number of raffle tickets for each species available for only $5 each. You can purchase both the RES Stamp and the raffle tickets at NVDreamTag.org.
All money raised by the Dream Tag program will be used for the preservation, protection, management and restoration of game and its habitat, as determined by the Advisory Board on Dream Tags.
In the past 20 years wildfires in Nevada have ravaged more than 13 million acres of crucial habitat. In only two years, the Nevada Dream Tag Program has been able to donate a total of $324,200 to habitat projects.
One of the best aspects of this raffle is the ability to purchase tickets for your family and friends. Anyone can go online and purchase their favorite hunter chances at the hunt of a lifetime for their birthday or Christmas or any special occasion.
For those not interested in hunting, the RES can be purchased by anyone that wants to contribute to the preservation, protection, management and restoration of game and its habitat.
Tickets for the Nevada Dream Tag raffle are available now and will be sold until June 30. The winners will be announced in early July.
