Predator Masters would like to see you bring your spouse and kids as well, we are not just a boy's club. There is something for everyone!

The banquet will be held at the Red Lion Hotel/Casino in the Humbolt Ball Room in the east end of the casino, the same hotel where we will be staying.

2065 Idaho Street • Elko, NV 89801 Exit 303 off I80

The Salt Lake City, Utah International Airport is about a 3.5 hours, 225 miles away from the PM Convention. It has Rental cars and full service. There are flights out of SLC to Elko if you desire also.

Red Lion offers free shuttle service to and from the Amtrak station and the Elko airport. There is a kiosk upon arrival to phone the front desk to let them know to come and get you.

The Red Lion is where we will have the dinners every night, guest speaker seminars, and the banquet for raffle ticket drawings for all kinds of predator hunting equipment.


We have a block of rooms reserved at the Red Lion Hotel at a special rate of $79/night plus tax. The hotel is centrally located to major artery roads to go any direction to hunt. You can be hunting on public lands within a 15 minute drive from the hotel. You are only about 1.5 hours from Utah or Idaho to hunt also. Utah does not require a license but Idaho does. In addition, the hotel is only about 6.5 miles from the Shooting Range (exit 298), where we will have this year's Egg Shoot.

You can make reservations conveniently with a phone call or online:

Call the Red Lion Direct – 775-738-2111 or 800-545-0044

There are several RV Parks in the area. A couple of them are - This one is across the street from the hotel that we have set up for everything.

We have not set up any special rates with them.

Just a few of the attractions in the area include:

California Trail Interpretive Center
Learn the stories of the pioneers who endured the 2000 mile trek to California

Northeastern Nevada Museum
The museum's history gallery and collection includes cultural, economic and early settlers artifacts.

There are gold mines and rock hounding throughout the area also

Each hotel room will have a visitors guide magazine in it. It is filled with things to do around Elko.

You must sign in or sign up for an account in the store before you will be able to see the hunt registration.

Raffle Tickets!

You can buy extra raffle tickets at the online PM Store during registration or anytime afterwards. You can also purchase extra raffle tickets at the PM Convention during the banquet nights.

Egg Shoot!

Details about the Egg Shoot can be found at this link:

You can register for the Egg Shoot at the online PM Store and the entry fee is $50. You can also register for the Egg Shoot during the Convention at any time before the shoot.

The kids egg shoot is free and the purpose of it is to encourage youngsters' interest in shooting.

The Egg Shoot will be held at the Elko County Shooting Range on Saturday morning Sept 16, 2017. You must be registered for the PM Convention to be eligible to compete in the Egg Shoot. If you can hit a chicken egg at 150 yards more times than the other attendees, you will win a custom made AR-15 rifle from Ritch's Precision Guns.


As with past Conventions, Predator Masters is NOT organizing a hunt. Any hunting that is done must be arranged privately between attendees for camaraderie. There is NO hunting contest, NO hunting prizes, NO check in location, and NO paid guiding. What you get is a great opportunity to meet and interact with other members from all over the United States and other countries to exchange ideas, methods, and techniques. The hunting that time of year should be outstanding.

Here is a link to the Nevada game information, license requirements, and maps.

Nevada Department of Wildlife

Here is the license fees. Note that no license is required to hunt coyotes unless you intend to sell the pelts.


In the past, most attendees arrived on Wednesday so in order to participate in local activities Thursday morning incidental to attending the convention. In light of this, an orientation meeting will be provided by a representative of the Nevada Department of Wildlife (NDOW) on Wednesday evening, September 13, 2017 at 6:00 pm at the Red Lion Hotel in the Lamoille room which is down the hall to the west of the hotel desk. All attendees are encouraged to come. The NDOW representative will provide a briefing about the game laws and other applicable information. This will be the time to ask any questions you may have about predator hunting in Nevada.

Some species can be hunted in Nevada without a hunting license, but a trapping license is required to trap them: They include the coyote, black-tailed jackrabbit, badger, weasel, spotted skunk, striped skunk, raccoon and the ring-tailed cat.

NOTE: A trapping license is required for any person of any age who sells raw furs of any kind, whether taken by trap or by firearm

The roads are mostly rutted, rocky, or dirt/mud. A 4-wheel drive isn't required in most areas, but a vehicle with high ground clearance is. If you are renting a car, it would be best to get a truck or SUV type.

If you have a GPS unit, definitely get a chip for it that will display land ownership for Nevada. There is more public land here than you can travel. However, there is a diversity of land status too. There is private, BLM, state and Indian reservation. Get a chip! One of the sponsors of Predator Masters has GPS chips available for Nevada and they are OnX Maps
