Special sage-grouse hunt applications open

Applications for the 2009 Special Sage-Grouse Hunt at Sheldon National Wildlife Refuge, in northwest Nevada on the Oregon border, are now available on the Nevada Department of Wildlife Web site at www.ndow.org/hunt/apps/.

"The Sheldon Sage-Grouse Hunt is a popular hunt with only 75 reservations available for an early and late season. Last year, the department received over 450 applications for the 150 available reservations," said NDOW game biologist Shawn Espinosa.

The Sheldon hunt will be open for two weekends: Sept. 19-20 and Sept. 26-27. This is a permitted hunt, with 75 permits awarded by random draw for each hunt. The hunt is open to both residents and nonresidents. The daily limit is two and the possession limit is four for sage-grouse.

Permit applications are available in a paper copy format via the NDOW Web site. Applications must be received by mail or in person by 5 p.m. on Aug. 7 at the NDOW headquarters office.

Both residents and nonresidents must have an upland game stamp and either a hunting license or short term permit to hunt while hunting upland game in Nevada.
