NM To Offer Late Season Archery Hunts For Elk

Oct 22, 2013

New Mexico plans to sell additional licenses to hunt trophy bull elk in the state.

The Department of Game and Fish is making available 275 archery hunting licenses through the agency's website next week.

Only New Mexico residents can buy the licenses for the first 24 hours of the sale, which starts at 10 a.m. Oct. 30. Any licenses that remain will be offered to out-of-state hunters the next day.

Hunters are eligible to buy a late-season license only if they don't have a 2013-2014 elk hunting permit.

The additional licenses are for elk hunting in November and December in parts of southern and western New Mexico.
