Kicking off the 2022-2023 big game hunting season

It seems like it comes faster and faster each year – the start of the 2022-2023 hunting season is roaring toward us. As of Jan. 19, 2022, the big game draw is open!

The leaves have changed and fallen to the ground. The elk and pronghorn ruts are in the distance and the deer rut is nearing its end. Miles have been put on boots. Shots have been taken. Wear and tear on bodies and equipment have happened. Wildlife has been seen. Memories have been made.

There are a few hunts still happening across New Mexico, but the majority of the 2021-2022 season is setting in the rearview mirror. Please share your memories and pictures with us. Send us a message on Facebook or Instagram and we will add to our hunting albums.

The Rules and Information Booklet is online now. New this year, you can view the RIB in English and Spanish.

Due to a nationwide paper shortage, we have had to cut back on the number of Rules and Information Booklets that we have ordered. There will be a LIMITED supply of the English version of the Rules and Information Booklets available at the Game and Fish Department offices in New Mexico. We are expecting a shipment to arrive in mid-January.

Keep in mind that the 2021-2022 Rules and Information Booklet is valid through March 31, 2022.
