The Nevada Department of Wildlife is accepting reservation applications for opening day and the first weekend of the 2019 dove hunting season at the Overton Wildlife Management Area.

At Overton WMA, reservations are required for the opening day and the first weekend of the hunting season. The season opens Sunday, Sept. 1 and opening weekend is Sept. 7-8.

Hunters must use paper applications, which must be delivered through a postal service and received at the NDOW Headquarters Office in Reno no later than 5 p.m. July 10. A public drawing will be conducted at 10 a.m., July 31 at that same location. Only complete and legible applications will be included in the reservation drawing, and successful applicants will receive their confirmation by return mail.

Hunters can find and print the reservation application form online at www.ndow.org. The file is located in the Applications section under the Hunt tab on the main page.  Just click on “Applications” and scroll down the page to the section titled 2019 Overton WMA Reservation Only Dove Hunt and download the application.

Paper applications will also be available at the NDOW Las Vegas office, 4747 Vegas Drive. The reservation only dove hunt zone is described in regulation as the Moapa Valley Portion of the Wildlife Management Area and has a maximum capacity of 60 hunters during the opening day and first weekend of the dove season.

The purpose of the reservation system is to reduce overcrowding and provide a quality hunting experience. Only those hunters with a valid hunt reservation will be allowed to hunt on the Moapa Valley Portion of the OWMA. Any vacancies will be filled by stand-by hunters on a first-come, first-served basis.
