FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, JUNE 16, 2014
LEFTOVER DEER, JAVELINA LICENSES GO ON SALE ONLINE AT 10 A.M. JUNE 25
SANTA FE –Thousands of leftover deer and javelina draw licenses will go on sale online at 10 a.m. Wednesday, June 25. To purchase a license, customers will need to log in to their Online License System account at https://onlinesales.wildlife.state.nm.us/.
Licenses will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis to New Mexico residents only for the first 24 hours. The sale will be opened to everyone, regardless of residency, at 10 a.m. June 26.
Hunters are strongly encouraged to purchase either a Game Hunting or a Game Hunting and Fishing license in advance because popular licenses often sell out quickly. A person without a Game Hunting or a Game Hunting and Fishing license will be required to purchase one before purchasing a leftover deer or javelina license.
All purchases will be audited to verify the customer’s eligibility. After being verified for eligibility, licenses will be awarded to hunters and will be available to print and view within a few days of purchase.
Hunters planning to purchase a leftover license also must have completed all mandatory 2013-2014 harvest reporting requirements or their purchase will be rejected in the post-sale audit. The license fee, but not the application fee will be refunded on rejected purchases.
Licenses can be printed from any computer by logging in to an account and selecting “My Purchases” in the main menu.
For more information about the leftover license sale, hunting in New Mexico, or for help logging in, please call us at (888) 248-6866. Leftover licenses will not be sold over the phone.
