Courtesy Cards

New Mexico Department of Game and Fish encourages all hunters and anglers to use courtesy cards to exchange information for a positive landowner-sportsman contact.

New Mexico state law requires sportsmen to obtain written permission prior to hunting, fishing or trapping on posted private property (NMSA 30-14-1). Violation of this statute is a misdemeanor offense and could lead to a revocation of hunting and fishing privileges for up to three years. Ignorance is no excuse, it is your responsibility to know the law and your location at all times.

New Mexico Department of Game and Fish encourages all hunters and anglers to use courtesy cards (see link below). By exchanging information on a courtesy card, a positive landowner-sportsman contact is established. Landowners are much more likely to all allow access if they have the names and vehicle descriptions of sportsmen.
