Sportsmen interested in applying for the first bear hunt in Nevada's history are reminded that applications are now being accepted online with Wildlife Administrative Services at until 5 p.m., May 13.

There are no paper applications for the 2011 black bear season as it is online only this year. The results of the draw will be provided on or before June 13. Information will not be given over the phone until that day and the draw reports will be available at the Wildlife Administrative Services Office, and Nevada Department of Wildlife (NDOW) offices in Elko, Ely, Fallon, Las Vegas, Henderson, Reno and Winnemucca on or before June 13.

The "any legal weapon" hunt is for both residents and nonresidents, and will run from Aug. 20 – Dec. 31 or until the harvest objective is met. The Nevada Board of Wildlife Commissioners set the tag quota at 45 and a harvest limit not to exceed 20 bears, of which only six can be females.

The Nevada Department of Wildlife (NDOW) protects, restores and manages fish and wildlife, and promotes fishing, hunting, and boating safety. NDOW's wildlife and habitat conservation efforts are primarily funded by sportsmen's license and conservation fees and a federal surcharge on hunting and fishing gear. For more information, visit

I don't knopw much about the

I don't knopw much about the state of Nevada but it's great to see a new opportunity offered. I'm sure the habitat varies far more than the hot dry areas of the state that I'm familiar with.

Good luck to anyone here that is going to apply and hope your hunts are a great success.
