SANTA FE – The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has partnered with the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish to offer mobile maps of New Mexico’s big-game hunting units through the CarryMap Application. This unique application allows users to store hunting unit maps on their mobile devices and access them regardless of cellular coverage.
The free CarryMap Application for iOS and Android devices is available at the App Store and Google Play Market. The information also is available for download to computers. To download the big-game hunting unit information, please visit the BLM website https://www.nm.blm.gov/huntingUnitMaps/mobileSite.html (https://www.blm.gov/maps/frequently-requested/new-mexico/hunting-maps) and accept the conditions.
“This application is a great example how agency partners can use modern technology to improve customer service,” New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez said. “I’m sure hunters throughout the state will appreciate the hard work that went into it.”
“The BLM is pleased to partner with the Department of Game and Fish to provide this mobile application to the hunters of New Mexico,” said BLM State Director Jesse Juen. “This will provide better access to public lands, while also increasing hunter’s confidence that they are in the correct locations for their hunt, regardless of cell phone reception.”
“The New Mexico Department of Game and Fish believes in utilizing technology to provide our hunters and anglers with the best information in the field,” Department Director Alexandra Sandoval said. “We are thankful for the effort BLM put into development of this free mobile application.”
