Manuel Overby

Duty Station:

Questa/Red River

Special Area of Responsibility/Game Mgmt Units:

53, part of 55A


Bachelor of Science in Agriculture, NMSU, Major: Wildlife Science

Length of Service:

6.5 years

Specialty or Interest:

Law Enforcement

Current Projects/Assignments:

Hunts are in full swing now in October and I’m quite busy with checking for compliance and assisting hunters.

Best Thing About the Job:

Driving someone else’s truck and using someone else’s gasoline to work outdoors.

Most Common Question People Have:

Where are all the fish? Where are all the elk?


As a hunter or angler, if you want to be successful, do some homework, check the fishing reports and hunting reports, plus get out in the field and go scouting. Most sportsmen that do their homework are more successful and have a better outdoor experience.
