CPLA comments on NMGF proposed rule changes

You may have heard that the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish (NMDGF) is seeking public comment on on proposed revisions to the deer, elk, and elk private lands use system rules. The Department "is proposing changes in deer, elk and the elk private lands use system (E-PLUS) across the state, including; splitting the deer archery season into 2 distinct seasons (September and January), adjusting licenses, adding new hunts, increasing elk harvest in some areas and establishing criteria to better administer the E-PLUS program."

The proposals can be viewed at the department's website at: http://www.wildlife.state.nm.us/commission/proposals-under-consideration/

The Chama Peak Land Alliance has submitted a letter of comment on these proposed rule changes. You can read that letter here.

You can submit comments by mail: New Mexico Department of Game and Fish, Attn: Big Game Rule Development, P.O. Box 25112, Santa Fe, NM 87504 or by email to DGF-Deer-Rules@state.nm.us; DGF-Elk-Rules@state.nm.us; DGF-EPLUS-Rules@state.nm.us,
