SANTA FE – More than 2,500 deer hunting licenses and almost 900 javelina licenses that were not allocated during the annual drawing for 2013-14 big-game hunting licenses will go on sale at 10 a.m. June 26 on the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish website.
New Mexico residents will get first shot at the licenses during the first-come, first-served sale. License sales will be open to residents only for the first 24 hours. The sale will be opened to everyone, regardless of residency, at 10 a.m. June 27.
To be eligible to buy a leftover license, hunters must have either previously purchased a game hunting or game hunting and fishing license. Those licenses, along with Habitat Improvement Stamps and Habitat Management Access Validations, also can be obtained through online accounts.
Game and fish strongly encourages interested hunters to obtain or review online customer accounts, including their Customer Identification number, user name and password, and to be signed on to their account before the sale begins.
Popular licenses often sell out very quickly.
Leftover licenses will be sold online only. Licenses and stamps can be printed from any computer by signing on to an account and selecting “My purchases.”
