Waterfowl and Chukar Hunts Open this Weekend!

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

It's the time of year hunters wait for all year long! This coming Saturday, October 14, is opening day for both the Northwest Zone and South Zone (except for Moapa Valley) waterfowl hunting seasons, along with the statewide chukar and quail seasons!

Small game hunting is a great way to get out and experience Nevada's landscapes with family and friends. Giving you even more of a reason to get out into the field, this years’ chukar season is shaping up to be one of the best in a decade or more with good productivity and overall numbers of birds that carried over from 2022, especially in northwestern Nevada

Waterfowl hunters can purchase a federal duck stamp or Carson Lake WMA permit by logging into their account at ndowlicensing.com.

View our small game regulations here. If you plan on chukar hunting, see the Nevada Chukar Forecast to help you plan your chukar hunt.
