Hunters and anglers who purchased hunting and fishing licenses while applying online for New Mexico’s 2012-13 big-game licenses should have received them by e-mail Thursday evening. The licenses, needed April 1 for fishing, and to purchase a spring turkey license, also are available for printing from customer accounts on the Department of Game and Fish website, www.wildlife.state.nm.us.
The application deadline for 2012-13 deer, elk, antelope, oryx, ibex, bighorn sheep, Barbary sheep and javelina was 5 p.m. Wednesday, March 28. Results will be available May 9 on the Department website and May 23 by phone.
Hunters and anglers are advised to carry a printed version of the receipt while in the field, as it serves as the customer’s license. Receipts include personal information about the customer and verification of which types of licenses, stamps and permits were purchased. Each receipt also will include an authorization number, which on its own serves as a license.
For more information, please call toll-free (888)248-6866.
