Dream Tag gives hunters another chance

Those who failed to draw a tag in the main draw or even those who drew a tag, but would still love the chance to go on a desert bighorn or bull elk hunt, the Nevada Dream Tag is a raffle that allows resident and non-resident sportspeople 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.

Five Dream Tags will be awarded in 2015: one for 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 (RES) for $10. Once a person has a stamp, purchase an unlimited number of raffle tickets for each species available for $5 each. Purchase both the RES Stamp and the raffle tickets at NVDreamTag.org.

The money raised through the sale of the Dream Tags goes directly to wildlife rehabilitation. In the past 20 years, wildfires in Nevada have ravaged more than 13 million acres of crucial habitat. In two years, the Nevada Dream Tag Program has been able to donate close to $600,000 to habitat projects. Those interested can also purchase tickets for family and friends.
