The dates are in for Nevada Upland Game Season 2017


Nevada Department of Wildlife (NDOW) has released dates and limits for Nevada’s 2017 Upland Game Season, which does include of course, long awaited Nevada chukar season.


Get ready for chukar season opener on October 14th, statewide.  We’re eagerly awaiting the 2017-18 Nevada chukar forecast, with NDOW officials typically conducting aerial density surveys mid-August.  It will be interesting to see what the record year of precipitation provides, as well as any impact of Nevada wildfires on chukar habitat and brood populations.


We’ve had an unusual year in Nevada for climate and conditions, which could lead to an unusual year of Nevada chukar hunting, either for better or for worse.
