Leftover licenses to go on sale
SANTA FE – More than 6,000 deer, elk and javelina licenses that were not sold during the annual drawing for big-game hunting licenses will go on sale at 10 a.m. Wednesday on the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish website, wildlife.state.nm.us.
New Mexico residents will get first shot at the licenses during the first-come, first-served sale. State law restricts sales to residents-only for the first 24 hours. The sale will open to nonresidents at 10 a.m. Thursday.
Hunters are strongly advised to obtain or review an online customer account, including a Customer Identification Number, user name and password before the sale begins. Popular licenses sell out in minutes, sometimes seconds, after sales begin.
