Have you ever wondered how the Department sets hunt dates, harvest limits and overall hunt structure?

2022 is a big year for hunting in New Mexico. The Department and State Game Commission will be reviewing nine rules that oversee big game hunting. It is an excellent time for everyone to get involved. We will give you the meat and potatoes for the rule-setting process during the January session.

Register in advance for this meeting:
