Nevada is a hunting state I admire and apply for. Lots of trophy quality hunts and public land, keep me DREAMING about cashing in my elk and mule deer points one day.
Nevada has benefited from a great 2014 Monsoon Season, although not every hunting unit/gmu has received 100-300% above average rainfall; plenty of the best Mule Deer & Elk units have. Most of Nevada’s Mule Deer are done growing, except for some of the desert mule deer in Southern Nevada. Thus, this rain will have little impact on their antler growth or the Elk’s antler growth for the 2014 hunting season.
I would love to have an Archery Elk Tag in Nevada this year, I would be willing to bet MOST of the elk (in the best units) are going to start rutting pretty good by the first week of September.
