FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, APRIL 22, 2014:
BIG-GAME HUNTING APPLICATION RESULTS AVAILABLE WEDNESDAY
SANTA FE – Hunters who applied for New Mexico big-game licenses can look up their draw results Wednesday thanks to the paperless, all-online system that allows the Department of Game and Fish to process applications faster than ever.
Applicants can view their draw results beginning at 10 a.m. Wednesday from their accounts on the Department website, www.wildlife.state.nm.us. The Department sent e-mail messages to successful applicants, informing them that they can print out receipts and licenses from their online account. Unsuccessful applicants will begin receiving license-fee refunds this week.
Draw results also will be available Wednesday by telephone by calling the Department’s toll-free information line, (888) 248-6866.
The Department received 169,463 applications – almost 10,000 more than last year – for 63,772 hunting licenses for deer elk, pronghorn antelope, oryx, ibex, javelina and Barbary sheep for the 2014-15 seasons.
