New Mexico Game & Fish

Albuquerque, NM –(Ammoland.com)- The State Game Commission has approved the nonprofit organization, the Donald R. Kemp Youth Hunting Club of Las Cruces, to qualify youths to receive donated hunting licenses and permits.

At its May 15 meeting, the commission amended a rule in January that allows those who cannot use a hunting license or permit to transfer it to youths 17 years of age or younger who have been qualified through an approved nonprofit organization that promotes youth hunting.

The change allows those who cannot use a hunting license to donate it to the Department of Game and Fish so it can be transferred to a youth.

The club is the first nonprofit to be approved under the new rule. The original rule restricted transfers to individuals identified by wish-granting organizations. Frequently these organizations were unable to locate appropriate recipients who could use the licenses and potential donations were left unused.

For more information about how to donate a hunting license or to learn how nonprofits can be approved by the commission, please contact the department at (888) 248-6866.
