This trend of poor recruitment has been a problem for many years, and Nevada's deer herd counts are far lower than they were in the 1980s. On a happier note, many units still continue to produce good bucks. Nonresident hunters performed well last year, with a harvest rate of 54 percent for rifle hunters. All of Nevada's deer tags are issued in a draw. Units 101-108 (early season) have 153 nonresident tags. Units 71-79 and 111-113 (both early) are assigned 57 nonresident tags per group. Some of the top units are those with late-season hunting, but only a handful of tags are issued. Look to units 261-268 (late), with a season running November 27 to December 5, and units 15 and 21, with seasons running December 4-26.
