There are only two days left to purchase tickets for the inaugural Nevada Dream Tag raffle. The raffle tickets will continue to be sold until 5 p.m. Saturday.
The Nevada Dream Tag 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. Raffle tickets are available for antelope, California bighorn sheep, deer, desert (Nelson) bighorn sheep or elk.
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 RES Stamp and the raffle tickets at NVDreamTag.org.
All money raised by the Dream Tag program will be used for the preservation, protection, management and restoration of game and its habitat, as determined by the Advisory Board on Dream Tags.
"This new program is a big deal for both hunters and non-hunters alike in Nevada," said Ken Mayer, director for the Nevada Department of Wildlife. "On one hand it offers hunters a chance at an amazing hunt, and on the other hand it gives people the opportunity to help support much needed habitat restoration in the state. Simply put, it's a win-win for Nevada."
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 their favorite hunter chances at the hunt of a lifetime for their birthday or Christmas or any special occasion.
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 game and its habitat.
