(3) Did not purchase or apply for any hunting, fishing or trapping privilege or entitlement conditional upon residency from another state, country or province.

2. A person who does not maintain his or her principal and permanent residence in Nevada but who is attending an institution of higher learning in this State as a full-time student is eligible for a resident license, tag or permit if, during the 6 months next preceding the person's application to the Department for a license, tag or permit, the person:

(a) Was physically present in Nevada, except for temporary trips outside of the State;  and

(b) Did not purchase or apply for any hunting, fishing or trapping privilege or entitlement conditional upon residency from another state, country or province.

4. As used in this section, “principal and permanent residence” means a place where a person is legally domiciled and maintains a permanent habitation in which the person lives and to which the person intends to return when he or she leaves the state in which the permanent habitation is located.  The term does not include merely owning a residence in a state.
