New Mexico–(Ammoland.com)- Mandatory harvest deadlines are fast approaching for hunters and trappers who held licenses for New Mexico’s 2013-14 seasons.
New mandatory harvest reporting requirements are in effect this year. The deadline to file a free report for hunters who held 2013-14 deer, elk, antelope or turkey licenses is Feb. 15, 2014. After that date, an $8 late fee will apply. Hunters must report on or before the March 19 application deadline or their applications will be rejected from the big-game draws.
The deadline to report for those who held 2013-14 Barbary sheep, javelina, oryx, ibex, or trapping licenses is April 7, 2014. The later harvest-reporting deadline allows license holders for those species to submit results after the seasons have closed.

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.
