Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Advisory Board Meeting @ Virtual
Jun 16 @ 6:00 pm

The New Mexico Department of Game and Fish has scheduled a public meeting of the Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) Advisory Board for Wednesday, June 16, 2021, at 6:00 p.m. The meeting will be held virtually on the OHV website.

Those interested in participating and providing comments are encouraged to pre-register and attend the meeting on the Zoom webinar platform. The Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Advisory Board will meet in public session to hear the following: OHV budget update, general program update, OHV education update, OHV law enforcement update and public comment.

The Department’s Off-Highway Vehicle Program has an annual budget of $795,100.00 funded by revenue generated from the Trail Safety Fund. The OHV Act required the creation of the Trail Safety Fund, which generates revenue from OHV registration fees.

The OHV Advisory Board was established to advise the Department of Game and Fish on matters related to administration of the OHV Act. The board consists of the following seven members appointed by the governor to two-year terms:

  • One landowner living near a national forest or Bureau of Land Management property that is used extensively for recreational off-highway vehicle activity;
  • One producer or one grazing permittee on public lands from the farming or livestock industry;
  • One person from the off-highway motor vehicle industry;
  • One off-highway motor vehicle user;
  • One hunter or angler;
  • One quiet recreationalist, such as a hiker, backpacker, birdwatcher, equestrian, mountain biker, rock climber or archaeological enthusiast; and
  • One member with expertise in injury prevention or treatment.

For more information about the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish’s Off-Highway Vehicle Program, please contact Matt Seidel, by email or phone (505) 222-4728, or visit the Department’s OHV webpage.

August Ladies’ Social – Field Dressing and Processing Tips @ Virtual
Aug 17 @ 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm

Hunting season is upon us and many of us will be headed into the woods, prairie or desert in hopes of filling our tag(s). Of course, we all relish the overall experience of just being outdoors but harvesting an animal is icing on the proverbial cake. Once you harvest….now what do you do? How do I take care of the animal so it produces a bounty of wonderful meat to nourish my family and friends? In our session, we will discuss and show field dressing and processing tips that will benefit not only the novice hunter but the seasoned one as well.
