The Department of Game and Fish is conducting public meetings statewide to address possible changes in the pronghorn antelope rule and A-PLUS, the system used to distribute pronghorn hunting opportunities on private land.
The Department will seek input about the proposed rule to allow hunters to purchase over-the-counter private-land pronghorn licenses and hunt on private land with written permission.
The meetings will be from 6 to 9 p.m. in:
- Roswell: Wednesday, Oct. 17, Department of Game and Fish Office, 1912 W. Second St.
- Carrizozo: Thursday, Oct. 18, 5 to 7 p.m., Lincoln County Commission Chambers, 300 Central Ave.
- Las Cruces: Monday, Oct. 22, Department of Game and Fish Office, 2715 Northrise Dr.
- Albuquerque: Thursday, Oct. 25, Department of Game and Fish Office, 3841 Midway Place, NE.
For more information about the proposed rule changes, A-PLUS, or the meetings, please contact Kevin Rodden, statewide deer and pronghorn manager, at the Department’s Southwest Area Office in Las Cruces at (575) 532-2100.
