Nevada Dream Tag tickets available now

LAS VEGAS -- While the big game application process may not start for a while, you can definitely scratch that itch by buying chances for the hunt of a lifetime with the Nevada dream tag raffle, in cooperation with the Nevada Department of Wildlife.

Five dream tags will be awarded in 2015 (elk, California bighorn sheep, desert bighorn sheep, antelope and mule deer). All that is required to get started in the raffle is to first purchase a Resource Enhancement Stamp 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 stamp and the raffle tickets at NVDreamTag.org

The Nevada dream tag 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. 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 his or her favorite hunter chances at the hunt of a lifetime any special occasion.

In only two years, the Nevada dream tag program has been able to donate a total of $324,200 to habitat projects.

For those not interested in hunting, the Resource Enhancement Stamp can be purchased by anyone that wants to contribute to the preservation, protection, management and restoration of wildlife and habitat.

Tickets for the dream tag raffle are available now and will be sold until June 30 for this year’s hunting season. The winners will be announced in early July.
