New Mexico State Game Commission
The New Mexico Legislature created a three-member State Game Commission in 1921. The commission eventually became a seven-member citizens’ body that sets hunting and fishing regulations, hires the Department of Game and Fish director, oversees spending of a more than $35 million annual budget, and sets the department’s overall direction.
The commission meets about six times a year in various communities round the state. Visit the Meetings and Agendas page.
