Hunting Seasons and Antelope Tags
Antelope hunts are spot and stalk or ambush hunts, though most outfitters, if you decide to go that route, will scout for you. The application deadline in Nevada is usually mid-April or early May with the hunting season running in August and September, depending on the unit.
Big game tags in Nevada include pronghorn antelope, mule deer, elk, bighorn sheep, black bear, and mountain goats. All hunters 12 and older must have a hunting license and once they apply for a tag, they are put in a random draw process that takes place in late May or early June. All remaining tags are distributed in early July on a first-come, first-served basis. As of the 2020/2021 season, hunters can obtain one tag for an antelope with horns longer than their ears or antelope with horns shorter than their ears.

As far as hunting seasons go, antelope archery season usually runs through August, any legal weapon season is in late August and early September, and muzzleloader season in late September/early October.
The 2020/2021 big game application deadline is May 4 with the first draw results released May 22.
