New Mexico Game & Fish

Albuquerque, NM -(Ammoland.com)– The New Mexico State Game Commission prohibits coyote-killing contests and the hunting of non-game species, including rabbits, prairie dogs or coyotes on its Wildlife Management Areas.

The New Mexico Department of Game and Fish manages New Mexico’s Wildlife Management Area system and promotes wildlife conservation throughout the state.

Only one Wildlife Management Area; Water Canyon, allows hunting for nongame species as a management tool for the non-native Himalayan tahr, a large ungulate related to the wild goat.

Commission owned properties such as Edward Sargent, Heart Bar, Lake Roberts, Pecos Canyon properties and the Rio Chama, provide wildlife safe places during crucial breeding and wintering times.

They also give visitors opportunities to access some of the most beautiful and wild places in New Mexico. Visitors to these areas must abide by all restrictions and posted notices.

About The New Mexico Department of Game and Fish

The NMDGF missions is to conserve, regulate, propagate and protect the wildlife and fish within the state of New Mexico using a flexible management system that ensures sustainable use for public food supply, recreation and safety; and to provide for off-highway motor vehicle recreation that recognizes cultural, historic, and resource values while ensuring public safety.

    1. These days the animals have more rights than people do. Can’t even hunt or kill crows on your own land in SC, now. Even if they are destroying your crops or property, they are protected.
