Ladies Hunting and Angling Social Hour @ Hybrid (in-person and Zoom)

Come join us Wed., Feb. 8 at 6 p.m. either in person in Albuquerque at Nexxus Brewing, 4730 Pan American Fwy NE, or in Las Cruces at the SW Area Game and Fish Office, 2715 Northrise Dr. If you are unable to participate in person you can register to participate virtually at the link provided below.

Is applying for hunts intimidating? Does it make your brain hurt? Are you new and don’t know where to start? Maybe you want to know how to read the available draw hunt odds to improve your hunting opportunities. Perhaps you just need a little guidance on the draw application process. If any of these apply to you, or maybe you have other reasons or questions, come join us! We are making ourselves available to help you navigate through the Big Game Rules and Information Booklet and how to use this resource to apply for the 2023-2024 hunt season. If you had a hunt this past season and are unfamiliar with how to fill out your harvest report, we can help!

Hunt applications can be entered on a computer, laptop, tablet or phone! Bring one of these devices with you or one will be available if you don’t have one. While this event is focused on ladies, but we welcome everyone to join us.
