Hunting in New Mexico: 8 Things to Know Before Applying for a Hunting Permit for Adults

By    |   Friday, 29 May 2015 01:03 PM

In order to ensure that hunting is as safe as possible, a permit is required before anyone goes hunting in New Mexico. This applies even if they choose to hunt on their own property. Permits allow the New Mexico Department of Wildlife and Fish to keep a record of how many residents and nonresidents own a license to hunt various creatures. This informs them what animals may be harvested more than others, and what areas of the state will be most populated by hunters. The end of the season harvest reporting gives them accurate information on exactly how much and where everything was killed. All of this information helps them determine the best conservation policies and license policies in order to keep hunting in New Mexico as safe and environmentally conscious as possible. Here are 8 things to be aware of before applying for an adult hunting permit in New Mexico.
