Expect roadblocks statewide during hunting, fishing seasons

The Department of Game and Fish will conduct roadblocks
throughout the state during spring and fall hunting seasons to
collect harvest data and to apprehend wildlife law violators.

Conservation officers also will check for compliance with the
registration requirements and safety provisions of the Off Highway
Motor Vehicle Act, and drivers of vehicles hauling wood products
will be asked to produce documentation as required by the Forestry
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
departments. As a result, hunters may encounter minor delays.

To report a wildlife-law violation, please contact your local
Department of Game and Fish conservation officer or call the
toll-free Operation Game Thief hotline at 1-800-432-GAME (4263).
Callers can remain anonymous and earn rewards for information
leading to charges being filed.
