A public drawing will be administered at 10 a.m. on Oct. 26 at the Valley Road office. The results will be posted on the NDOW website and all party leaders will receive a letter indicating if they were successful or unsuccessful in the drawing. NDOW received a total of 150 applications for the hunt last year.
The hunt will be conducted on nine consecutive Saturdays beginning Nov. 26. In addition, two Wednesdays (Dec. 7 and Dec. 14) will be included in this year’s hunt. A total of seven blind locations will be available, each of which will accommodate a maximum of four hunters. No more than 28 hunters will be allowed to hunt in the controlled goose hunt zone on any single day.
Hunters are reminded that additional goose hunting opportunities are available exclusive of the controlled hunt zone, including hunts in established agricultural fields and also in the many ponds on the area.
The Mason Valley WMA is located in Mason Valley in Lyon County, about 75 miles southeast of Reno via Interstate 80 and U.S. Alternate 95. The WMA now totals 15,840 acres.
