Get Involved with Proposed Changes in Pronghorn Rule – New Mexico

Be it pronghorn rulings or Constitutional Rights, getting involved is the best way to make an impact. I continually share information about how you can make a difference. Each of these involves making your voice heard. I attend many public meetings, forums, round tables, and commission meetings.

A lot of what I do is gain knowledge. I learn about all these things my friends are griping about. I learn why a lot of things are done the way they are. I also have the opportunity to speak up, to the people who can make things happen and have my voice heard. I hope you too will get involved, if you aren’t already. Never rely on someone else to say what you wish someone else already knew.

Public meetings will address proposed changes
in pronghorn rule

SANTA FE –The Department of Game and Fish is seeking public comment on proposed revisions to the pronghorn rule.

The Department is proposing changes to how pronghorn are hunted in New Mexico, structuring pronghorn hunts similarly to how deer are hunted in the state. This will provide increased opportunity for public and private-land hunters.

Improved pronghorn survey methods have resulted in better biological data from which to base harvest recommendations. Additionally, the department has heard various concerns regarding the current Antelope Private Land Use System (A-PLUS).  The department is developing recommendations to be implemented for the start of the 2019-2020 hunting season.

To gather public comments, four public meetings will be conducted:

  • Albuquerque: 6 to 7:30 p.m. Oct. 12 at the Department of Game and Fish office, 3841 Midway Place, NE.
  • Las Vegas: 6 to 7:30 p.m. Oct. 26 at the New Mexico State Police Office, 520 South Commerce.
  • Roswell: 6 to 7:30 p.m. Nov. 9 at the Department of Game and Fish office, 1912 W. Second St.
  • Las Cruces: 6 to 7:30 p.m. Nov. 16 at the Department of Game and Fish office, 2715 Northrise Drive.

The proposal can be viewed on the Department’s website, Comments on the proposed changes can be provided by mail: New Mexico Department of Game and Fish, Attn: Nicole Quintana, P.O. Box 25112, Santa Fe, NM 87504
