    Pair of antelopes shot, left to rot ESTANCIA – The Department of Game and Fish would like to make the holidays a lot less merry for whoever shot two pronghorn antelope and left them to rot in a field near Estancia. Conservation officer John Martsh said the antelope were killed sometime between 10 a.m.-12:45 p.m. Dec. 15, off N.M. 542 south of Estancia. There was no hunting season in progress at the time. “It appears that someone drove up, shot the antelope and then left the scene in a hurry to prevent being caught,” Martsh said. A $350 reward is being offered for information that leads to charges being filed in connection with the case. Call 800-432-4263 to report any information.

  • Wyoming looking for second NM Bowl title
    LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming completed the majority of its game preparations before traveling to Albuquerque on Wednesday for the New Mexico Bowl, where the Cowboys will face Temple, coach Dave Christensen said. “We’re focused in and ready to go,” Christensen said, adding that he was pleased with the four practices held in Laramie since last week. The New Mexico Bowl is noon Saturday at University Stadium. It’s Wyoming’s second New Mexico Bowl appearance in three years. The Cowboys beat Fresno State 35-28 in double OT  in 2009. Both teams enter with 8-4 records, and Wyoming is looking for its first nine-win season since 1996.
