SANTA FE, NM –-(Ammoland.com)- Hunters who need access to computers or need help with the Department of Game and Fish online-only license application system can find both at locations statewide beginning Saturday, Feb. 25.
Department representatives and staff will be available at 17 locations around the state to help hunters apply for 2012-13 licenses for deer, elk, antelope, oryx, ibex, bighorn sheep, Barbary Sheep and javelina. Sessions will be Feb. 25, March 10, March 11, March 24 and March 25. The application deadline is 5 p.m. March 28.
This year, the Department eliminated paper application forms in favor of a paperless online system designed to streamline the application and licensing process and make drawing results and refunds available much sooner. Hunters who need help with the online process can attend one of the statewide sessions or call the toll-free assistance line, (888) 248-6866. Trained representatives will guide customers through the application process in person or over the phone.
