Hunters have a second chance to obtain 2005 big game tags

According to a press release by the Nevada Department of Wildlife (NDOW), big game hunters who did not obtain a tag in Nevada's main computerized drawing still have a chance to get in on this year's hunting seasons.

There are more than 900 big game tags still available for the upcoming second drawing. The tags that have drawn the most interest are:

The 107 cow elk tags for rifle hunters, the 15 cow elk tags for muzzleloader hunters, and the 22 cow elk tags for archers.

Most of these tags were in the Non-Resident quota for the first drawing, but since they were not drawn by Non-Residents, they are available, equally, to resident and Non-Residents in the second drawing.

Junior hunters have 541 tags remaining, which includes 508 tags for big game management unit Nos. 101-108.

Archery hunters have nearly 300 buck mule deer tag available, of which 258 are in Nos. 101-108.

Three muzzleloader tags are available for buck mule deer.

There are 22 tags available for antlerless mule deer in Nos. 114-115.
