FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, APRIL 9, 2018:
Expect roadblocks statewide
during hunting and fishing seasons
SANTA FE – The Department of Game and Fish will conduct roadblocks throughout the state during hunting and fishing seasons to collect harvest data and to detect wildlife law violations.
The 2018-2019 hunting and fishing season began April 1. All hunters and anglers are required to purchase a new license before hunting and fishing. Anglers can expect roadblocks throughout the summer. Guides and outfitters are also reminded that new registration is required.
Youth turkey season begins April 6 and the general season begins April 15. Trapping and hunting season continues for raccoons April 1 to May 15 and April 1-30 for beaver, muskrat and nutria. Year-round cougar, Barbary sheep, off-range oryx and off-mountain ibex seasons run from April 1, 2018 to March 31, 2019.
For more information, please consult the department’s Hunting Rules & Information booklet, available at www.wildlife.state.nm.us or at area offices and license vendors.
At roadblocks, conservation officers also will check for compliance with the Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Act. Drivers of vehicles hauling wood products will be asked to produce documentation as required by the Forest 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 offices. As a result, the public may encounter minor delays.
Everyone is encouraged to report any wildlife crime or suspected crime they see while enjoying New Mexico’s great outdoors.
To report a wildlife crime, please call Operation Game Thief toll free at 1-800-432-GAME (4263). Callers can remain anonymous and earn rewards for information leading to charges being filed. Violations also can be reported online at Operation Game Thief.

Yep. I got the same e-mail and was super disappointed. Maybe it is a test for tomorrow since I will be on the road to Silver City going over the Black Range.
Going turkey hunting?
Yep but not until the 15th. Playing chauffeur for the wife, down and back in one day.
Shopping for hunting gear with the wife is like hunting with the game warden.
