Nevada Department of Wildlife    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article

This year is different. This year, you still have a chance ... lots of them. The all new Nevada Dream Tags Program is a raffle that 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. More
