NEVADA’S FIRST COME FIRST SERVE PROGRAM – Nevada offers a unique opportunity for hunters labeled their “First Come First Serve” program. When hunters return tags, prior to the start of the season, the tags may qualify for this program. The tags randomly appear on a portion of the website, and whoever is the fastest to click will get the tag added into their cart. Once in their cart, the user has five minutes to check out.
Some updates to the system that were previously approved by the Nevada Board of Wildlife Commissioners recently went into effect regarding the program. The changes are as follows:
- If a person who uses the electronic system to apply for a tag pursuant to subsection 1 abuses the electronic system by attempting to create or by creating an unfair advantage in obtaining the tag, he or she shall be suspended by the Department from applying for any tags remaining for the applicable season. Activities that are cause for such suspension include, without limitation:(a) The use of a technological program designed to carry out tasks that would otherwise be performed under human supervision; (b) The use of technology designed to create an unfair advantage; (c) Multiple logins into a single customer’s account; or (d) Multiple browser sessions open at a single time.
- If a person who uses the electronic system to apply for a tag pursuant to subsection 1 abuses the system by making continued and substantial efforts to create an unfair advantage, as described in subsection 4, he or she shall be suspended by the Department from using the electronic system to apply for remaining tags in any future hunting seasons.
This is a great option for hunters looking for more opportunities to be in the field. Nevada is a great state to hunt in, and hunters should take any opportunity they can to hunt there.
