New Mexico -(Ammoland.com)- The Department of Game and Fish will conduct roadblocks throughout the state during hunting seasons to collect harvest data and to detect wildlife law violations.

Hunting seasons are approaching for pronghorn antelope, deer, elk, bears and some other species as listed in the department’s Hunting Rules & Information booklets.

At roadblocks, conservation officers also will check for compliance with the Off Highway Motor Vehicle Act and the Aquatic Invasive Species Control Act. Drivers of vehicles hauling wood products will be asked to produce documentation as required by the Forest Conservation Act.

Department officers may be assisted by other law enforcement agencies such as the U.S. Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, New Mexico State Police or county sheriff’s offices. As a result, the public may encounter minor delays.

To report a wildlife-law violation, please contact a Department of Game and Fish area office in Santa Fe, Albuquerque, Raton, Roswell or Las Cruces, or call the toll-free Operation Game Thief hotline at (800) 432-GAME (4263). Callers can remain anonymous and earn rewards for information leading to charges being filed.

When I went through the Police Academy we were school that driving on a public highway is NOT probable cause for a stop. So, explain to me how this passes the Constitutional sniff test.


A witch hunt! Stop and detain you without individual probable cause, without a warrant, for the purpose of violating your unalienable Right of privacy by searching your personal property looking for evidence that you might have violated a tyrannical law. Stopped by force at the point of a gun at a “third world checkpoint” and demand to see our papers! Can anyone say “King George’s tyrannical laws are enforced here”!


As long as the sheeple put up with these and all gestapo check-points, and don’t put the jack-Booted thugs down, they will continue at a greater rate and for any reason they deem “Necessary”
