Elk NetworkSecond Chance Elk Draw Opportunities Available in Nevada, South Dakota

General | June 10, 2021

Hunters who were either unsuccessful in Nevada’s recent big game draw or missed the deadline to submit an application have a second chance at an archery or muzzleloader tag for elk, pronghorn antelope or mule deer. Hunters can apply for the big game second draw at ndowlicensing.com through June 14, 2021, at 11 p.m.

Eligible junior hunters may submit an application for the following hunts: Unit Group 032 (18 tags available) and Unit Group 101-109 (72 tags available).

South Dakota’s second draw elk application is also available online. The deadline for Black Hills Elk, Archery Elk and Prairie Elk is 8 a.m. (CDT) on June 16. Applications for the second drawing are online only, no paper applications.

Applicants can choose to use their preference points for the second draw. However, if they use their preference points, and are successful in the draw, they will lose all accumulated preference points for that season and cannot apply in the first draw for nine years.
