The Nevada Department of Wildlife (NDOW) is scheduled to hold a workshop on Friday, March 25, to discuss a number of hunting regulations. One of the proposed regulations would make it unlawful to hunt big game animals with a rifle using a centerfire cartridge larger than .46 caliber or an overall loaded length of 3.8 inches or longer.
The proposed regulation is unfounded and will only serve to arbitrarily limit the rights of law-abiding gun owners and hunters. Many cartridges used for big game hunting exceed the arbitrarily selected .46 caliber restriction, such as the .470NE, .500NE, .50Beowulf, .50 BMG, .577NE and the 505 Gibbs.
To voice your opinion through oral or written comment, please attend the NDOW workshop. Workshop details can be found below. If you are unable to attend, please click the “Take Action” button below to contact NDOW with your opposition to this proposed regulation.
