Department of Game and Fish officers will conduct roadblocks in southeastern New Mexico during the Barbary sheep hunts to collect harvest data and to apprehend wildlife law violators. Roadblocks will be scheduled primarily in Game Management Units 29, 30, 32, 34, 36 and 37.
Conservation officers also will check for compliance with the registration requirements and safety provisions of the Off Highway Motor Vehicle Act. Drivers of vehicles hauling wood products will be asked to produce documentation as required by the Forestry Conservation Act.
Department officers may be assisted by other law enforcement agencies such as the U.S. Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, New Mexico State Police or county sheriff’s departments. As a result, hunters may encounter minor delays.
To report a wildlife-law violation, please contact your area Department of Game and Fish office or call the toll-free Operation Game Thief hotline at (800) 432-GAME (4263). Callers can remain anonymous and may earn rewards for information leading to charges being filed.
