New Mexico is offering hunters another opportunity to buy a license to hunt deer and javelina later this year and in early 2015.

The state Game and Fish Department plans an online sale next week of about 1,000 javelina licenses and more than 3,000 deer licenses, many of them for archery and muzzleloader hunts.

The licenses were left over after the department's annual drawing for hunting permits.

The sale is open first to New Mexico residents, beginning at 10 a.m. on June 25 on the department's web site. Out-of-state residents can purchase a leftover license starting the next day.
