Please Support the Following Bills

​Senate Joint Resolution 11, a bill to guarantee the right to Hunt, trap, and fish in the Nevada constitution, has passed out of the Senate and is headed to the Assembly.  Thanks to everyone who took the time to register their opinion and/or contacted their Senators.  More information: SJR11

SB163 proposes to educate the general public about wildlife, wildlife management, and the source of funding by sportsmen through an education campaign.

Senate Bill 4 "Provides exemptions from certain registration requirements for the trapping of wild mammals on private property."   SB4 is intended to clarify SB213 which passed during the 2013 Legislative Session.  Here is the bill as it is currently amended.

Share your opinion on wildlife bills by clicking on this link and registering your vote for
SJR11 and SB 163.  You can leave comments there as well.

If you have a little extra time send a personal email to the following Senators.





Senator Hammond is the primary sponsor of both bills, Senators Gustavson is the chairman of the committee and a co sponsor of SJR11, Senators Goicochea and Settelmeyer are also co sponsors of SJR11.

Assemblywoman Amber Joiner is a co sponsor on SB163, please send her a letter of thanks as well


Change to License Year

The Wildlife Commission recently voted to change the regulation which determines the license year for trapping.  Licenses will now be valid during the fiscal year (in other words a license will be valid from the date of issue until the last day of June). The change is due in part to concerns about better reflecting the seasonal harvest.  Current license holders should have received a license extension by mail.  Please contact NDOW if you have not received it. 

Hunting and fishing licenses are not effected.  That license year will remain March 1 to February 28.

Be sure to read our NEWS page for more NTA information.   Thanks for visiting.
