Hunters, anglers and other outdoor adventurers are invited to join the Department of Game and Fish this weekend, Feb. 8-10, at the state fairgrounds, where visitors will find information about upcoming seasons, off-highway vehicle riding and more.
Bob Gerding’s Outdoor Adventures Hunting and Fishing Show will be from noon to 6 p.m. Friday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday at the Manuel Lujan Building at EXPO New Mexico, also known as the state fairgrounds. Admission is $8 for adults. Children ages 11 and under are free.
The Department will be at the show with the new Hunting Rules and Information Booklets, information on changes for upcoming hunting seasons and computer stations for hunters to report their harvest, purchase licenses and apply for hunting license drawings for the 2013-14 seasons.
If you are interested in off-highway vehicles, the department will have an OHV simulator that will give riders a feel for the ride while emphasizing safety. “The purpose of the simulator is to give people of all ages a hands-on experience on proper riding techniques,” said Marc Hildesheim, off-highway vehicle education coordinator for the department.
This is the 15th year for the popular show that features exhibits from guides, outfitters and lodges from around the country.
