Deadline nears for hunting licenses

-A A +A
By The Staff

Hunters planning to enter the drawing for 2011-2012 big-game licenses have until March 28 to apply with the Department of Game and Fish.
This year’s deadline is earlier than previous years’ to allow hunters to take advantage of discounts available when they buy combination hunting and fishing licenses. The department is expecting more than 130,000 applications for about 62,500 licenses for deer, elk, pronghorn antelope, bighorn sheep and other animals.
At the Valles Caldera National Preserve, Hunt Manager Mick Trujillo said the numbers of hunters fluctuate year to year but this year the preserve will give away 75 bull elk tags and 150 antlerless elk tags.
Due to the mild snow fall this winter, Trujillo said not a lot of elk migrated off the preserve. As a result, “We are anticipating a very a good hunt season,” he said.
He added the first archery hunt of the season will be Sept. 6-12 followed by another Sept. 16-20.
Hunters will also be out in the preserve in October and November.
“We promote two main drivers on hunting in the preserve, which are safety and quality of experience in everything we do related to hunting on the preserve,” Trujillo said.
