Nevada's 2018 Big Game Draw Set for Today

Results will be released on Friday, May 25

Nevada Department of Wildlife just released the following press release at 2:07 p.m. PST about the 2018 big game draw and draw results:

With the big game draw set for today, sportsmen and women might have a little trouble sleeping until the results come out on Friday.

One question that hunters will not have to worry about, however, is the draw process and the issuing of tags will remain the same.

Nevada awards big game tags through a random draw process with every application assigned a random number or “draw number.” The applications are sorted in ascending order by draw numbers and allotted by species in areas with available remaining quotas. This year alone, almost 6 million random numbers will be generated and distributed across all species, hunts and weapon classes.

As required by state law NDOW uses a third party vendor to administer the draw. This year, NDOW followed a strict state guided procurement process and selected a new forward thinking vendor in Kalkomey Enterprises, LLC (Kalkomey).

“Nevada’s big game draw is a unique, complicated and precise system of distributing tags,” said Tony Wasley, Director of the Nevada Department of Wildlife (NDOW). “We are fortunate to be partnering with Kalkomey and look forward to working with them as we continue to strive for the most convenient, modern and simple process for our sportsmen.”

Wasley points to Kalkomey’s long history of working with state fish and wildlife agencies as another reason for the Department’s confidence in their abilities.

“Kalkomey partners with over 100 different government agencies in all 50 states and other countries including Canada, New Zealand and Mexico,” said Wasley. “The innovation and technology that Kalkomey brings to the table will help us get sportsmen outside faster.”

Hey Jesse. Nevada does things a little differently. Typically your card will get hit four days to a week after the results are out.
