receive, bring, or have brought or shipped into the State of Nevada, or to remove from one portion of this State
to any other portion or to any other state, any raptor or any eggs or young of any raptor.
2. Any person who holds a valid falconry license which is issued by the Department and lists the raptors in
his possession may bring into this State or remove to any other state any raptor listed on the license without

and Wildlife Service or the Department, as appropriate, and which is not reusable, is attached to the raptor.
3. A person who is a resident of another state and who holds a valid falconry license issued by the
appropriate agency of that state may bring into or remove from this State a raptor in his possession under the
authority of that falconry license without having a permit for the importation or exportation of a raptor issued by
the Department if a numbered marker which is supplied by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service or the
appropriate agency of the state which issued the license if required, as appropriate, and which is not reusable,
is attached to the raptor.
4. A raptor taken from the wild in Nevada by a resident of this State may not be permanently removed from
this State unless the:
(a) Resident holds a valid license issued by the Department pursuant to NRS 503.583 and leaves this
State to establish his domicile in another state; or
(b) Raptor has been held for at least 1 year.
NAC 503.225 Purchase, sale or transfer of raptors.
1. A person who holds a valid falconry license issued by the Department may receive by transfer legally
acquired raptors from other persons possessing a valid falconry license or a propagation permit. Any person
who receives a raptor by transfer, purchase, trade or barter must be authorized to receive such a raptor
pursuant to the provisions of NAC 503.235 and 503.250.
2. A licensed falconer may purchase, sell, trade or barter any captive-bred raptor which is banded with

3. A captive-bred raptor may not be transferred, purchased, sold, traded or bartered until it is 2 weeks old
and only after it is properly marked with a numbered seamless marker provided or authorized by the United
States Fish and Wildlife Service.
4. Each time a person acquires a raptor, he shall notify the Department within 5 calendar days after the
acquisition. To comply with the provisions of this subsection, a person who acquires a raptor may submit to the
Department a copy of form 3-186A, which must be submitted to the United States Fish and Wildlife Service.
NAC 503.315 Permit to rehabilitate raptors; permit for captive breeding and propagation of raptors.
(NRS
501.105, 501.181, 503.582)
1. The Department may issue a permit to rehabilitate raptors for the possession and temporary care of
raptors. Such a permit may authorize a person to hold an injured raptor for rehabilitation and later release the
raptor into the wild upon recovery or when directed by the Department. An applicant for a permit to rehabilitate
raptors must hold a valid permit to rehabilitate raptors issued by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service, or
provide evidence satisfactory to the Department that approval for such a permit is pending. A permit to
rehabilitate raptors issued by the Department is not valid until the Department receives a copy of a permit to
rehabilitate raptors issued by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service to the applicant.
2. A project for the captive breeding and propagation of raptors may be approved by the Department if the
applicant holds a permit for the propagation of raptors issued by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service
pursuant to 50 C.F.R. § 21.30, or provides evidence satisfactory to the Department that approval for such a
permit is pending. A permit for the captive breeding and propagation of raptors issued by the Department is not
valid until the Department receives a copy of a permit for the propagation of raptors issued by the United
States Fish and Wildlife Service to the applicant. The applicant must first provide a statement showing the
objectives and justification for the project. An applicant’s failure to comply with the terms, conditions and
restrictions of the federal permit for the propagation of raptors is cause for the Department to cancel its
approval of the project.
