Apply for Bird Hunting Permits
The Department of Game and Fish will begin accepting online applications at 10 a.m. Wednesday, Aug. 28, for special-permit pheasant, sandhill crane and youth waterfowl hunting opportunities.
All applications must be made through the Department's online licensing and application system. Applicants previously must have created an online account. Here's how to apply:
· Online: Applicants can access or create accounts via the Department website, www.wildlife.state.nm.us. From their account, applicants will be prompted through permit and application choices.
· By phone: Hunters without computer access or who need help applying can call toll-free, (888) 248-6866 and a Department representative will submit an application for them. The information center will be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays. The center will close at 4:30 p.m. on deadline day, Oct. 2, to allow customers to complete applications before the 5 p.m. deadline.
