Leftover New Mexico Big Game Permits

New Mexico Department of Game and Fish

More than 1,700 New Mexico public-land deer permits, 20 elk licenses for mobility impaired hunters, and 231 archery javelina licenses leftover from the 2009-2010 drawing will be available beginning at 10:00am,  August 19 — only on the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish Web site.

“As is often the case, the Department had a handful of hunts that went unsubscribed following this year’s big game draw,” said Patrick Block, Assistant Director of the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish. “We want do everything we can to give New Mexico’s hunters every opportunity to enjoy the sport they are so passionate about.”

The deer permits are for hunts in game management units where the number of permits or licenses exceeded the number of applicants. They will be available — first-come, first-served — for an application fee of $9 for residents, $12 for nonresidents. Applications will be accepted only on the Department’s Web site, www.wildlife.state.nm.us.
