Santa Fe, NM -(Ammoland.com)- More than 2,000 youth antlerless elk licenses will go on sale through the Department of Game and Fish’s Online License System at 10 a.m. Wednesday, July 9.

To purchase a license, customers will need to log in to their Online License System account here.

The sale is designed to encourage youth hunting and includes almost 1,500 licenses for hunters using any legal weapon and 540 licenses for hunters using a muzzleloader or bow. Licenses will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis, and hunters must be younger than 18 years of age on opening day of the hunt to be eligible.

For the first 14 days, the sale will be open only to eligible New Mexico youths who successfully applied but did not draw a deer, elk, pronghorn, ibex, oryx or bighorn sheep license this year. Beginning at 10 a.m. July 23, the sale will open to all eligible youths, regardless of residency, who did not draw a 2014-15 elk license, whether they applied or not.

Youth hunters must have either a valid Hunter Education or Mentored Youth number entered in their account before purchasing or applying for a hunting license.

Hunters must have a current Junior Game Hunting or a Junior Game Hunting and Fishing license to purchase an elk license successfully. Customers without a Game Hunting license will be directed to purchase one before continuing to the youth encouragement sale.

All purchases will be audited to verify the customer’s eligibility. Hunters planning to purchase a youth encouragement license must have completed all mandatory 2013-2014 harvest reporting requirements or their purchase will be rejected in the post-sale audit. The license fee, but not the application fee will be refunded on rejected purchases.

After eligibility is verified, licenses will be awarded to hunters and will be available to print and view within a few days of purchase. Licenses can be printed from any computer by logging in to an account and selecting “My Purchases” in the main menu.
