More than 24 wildlife killing contests have occurred in Nevada in recent years, including here in Clark County.
Nevada is one of the last states in the southwest that allows these contests.
And recently, competitions have migrated to an app-based system.
A virtual check-in system allows for "anyone with a smartphone" to compete, allowing killing to occur anywhere.
