The New Mexico Outdoor Adventures Hunting and Fishing Show was started after Bob Gerding passed to continue his legacy of bringing together people who spend time outdoors in New Mexico. The Department sponsors several activities at this annual event, including a catch-and-release fish pond for kids that gives them an opportunity to win prizes from the many vendors participating. Several calling contests are also taking place, including turkey and elk. Conservation officers will be on hand with the Poach Coach to answer questions, as will several biologists and other Department employees. The event is free to those who have a valid hunting or fishing license. Entry fee is $3 for all others.
