My Turn: State seeking hunting input

By Clarence Plank: PNT staff writer

New Mexico Department of Game and Fish officials are conducting public meetings to request input from hunters and maybe trappers about several changes to the state’s big-game hunting rules.

The comments and the proposed changes will be presented to the state Game Commission in June. The changes will be available for public review on the Game and Fish website.

The proposals range from expanding hunting hours to bag limits and eliminating certain hunts in different areas.

The proposals are listed on the Game and Fish website at www.wildlife.state.nm.us

You can e-mail comments on the website or send correspondence to New Mexico Department of Game and Fish, c/o Wildlife Management Division, 1 Wildlife Way, Santa Fe, NM 87507.
