Overview for Nevada

Firearms cannot be discharged into or at buildings, vehicles, watercraft, and aircraft. Nevada also forbids firing from, across or at a state or federal highway. This also applies to country and main roads, or any public place where someone may be injured by this action.

The only time a person may hunt from a vehicle is if they are paraplegic and the vehicle is parked away from the traveled area of a highway. Hunting from any motor vehicle including snow mobiles, helicopters, motor vehicles, and aircraft is illegal.
