Hunting in New Mexico
Whether you’re hunting grouse, squirrels, quail or waterfowl, or holding out for that elusive trophy bull elk, mule deer or pronghorn, New Mexico’s hunting opportunities are as abundant and diverse as its terrain and habitat.
New Mexico also offers hunting opportunities not found anywhere else, including hunts for exotic species including Persian ibex, oryx and Barbary sheep.
New Mexico Department of Game and Fish biologists and wildlife managers work to maintain and improve wildlife habitat and protect wildlife populations, while providing hunting opportunities on public and private lands for a variety of species throughout the state.
