Welcome

Welcome to the Nevada Trappers Association website.  The fur industry has a long and colorful history in our state.  It is a vital part of wildlife management and continues to add to the economy today.  In these pages you will learn about our association and events.  We invite you to become a member.  

2015 Fur Sale

Results from the sale will be posted early next week.

The Nevada Fur Sale will be held at the Fallon Convention Center, Fallon, NV on February 27, 28 & March 1, 2015.  Reservations for each day are required as the facility and the buyers can only handle so much fur on each day. Existing NVTA members will be given first priority for reservations. Just like last year, checks will not be sent out until the following Saturday at the latest. This is a necessity due to the time it takes for out-of-state buyer’s checks to clear the bank. 

Reservations can be made by calling Jim or Judi at (775) 867-2239 after January 1st. Hope all of you have a great season.
 

The Super 8 Motel in Fallon is again offering a special rate for trappers attending the fur sale.  You must tell them you are there for the Fur Sale to get the special rate!
Single - $45 plus tax
Double - $50 plus tax

775-423-6031 for reservations

2015 Legislative Report

Senate Bill 4 "Provides exemptions from certain registration requirements for the trapping of wild mammals on private property."   SB4 is intended to clarify SB213 which passed during the 2013 Legislative Session.  Here is the bill as it is currently amended.

Change to License Year

The Wildlife Commission recently voted to change the regulation which determines the license year for trapping.  Licenses will now be valid during the fiscal year (in other words a license will be valid from the date of issue until the last day of June). The change is due in part to concerns about better reflecting the seasonal harvest.  Current license holders should have received a license extension by mail.  Please contact NDOW if you have not received it. 

Hunting and fishing licenses are not effected.  That license year will remain March 1 to February 28.
