Hunters must report on or before the March 20 application deadline or their applications will be rejected from the big-game draws.

The deadline to report for those who held 2018-19 Barbary sheep, javelina, oryx, ibex or trapping licenses is midnight April 7, 2019. The later harvest-reporting deadline allows license holders for those species to submit results after the seasons have closed.

Hunters and trappers can file their mandatory harvest report on the department website, by logging in to their account and clicking “Harvest Reporting” in the main menu. Reports also can be submitted by phone toll-free at (888) 248-6866 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

The department encourages hunters and trappers to keep their confirmation number for their records and to update their account information and provide a valid email address so they can receive important information, confirmation emails and receipts from the department.

License holders must file a report, even if they did not hunt or trap. Failure to file a mandatory harvest report on time will result in rejection of all big-game applications.

Halt of Wolf Releases Moves to Federal District Court

nmdgf logo

LAS CRUCES – In an effort to thwart the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish, the United States Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) removed the department’s application to temporarily halt future Mexican wolf releases into New Mexico from state to federal court late Friday. The department’s application alleges the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) ignored state and federal laws last month by importing and releasing two Mexican wolves without first obtaining required state permits.

Under New Mexico law, the importation and release of non-domesticated animals requires a permit from the department and federal law instructs the USFWS to consult with the states and obtain necessary permits before releasing wildlife.

“Although we anticipated this move,” said Department Director Alexandra Sandoval, “we believe recent actions by the USFWS violate state and federal law. A review of the state law violations certainly belongs in state court. Regardless of venue, we are committed to pursuing this matter.”

The department originally filed the application in the state’s 7th Judicial District Court. It has since been moved to the U.S. District Court in Las Cruces.
