NM disabled vets can buy discount hunting license

Santa Fe, N.M. (AP) – New Mexico veterans with service-connected
disabilities will be able to get discounted hunting and fishing
licenses starting next Wednesday.

The Department of Game and Fish says the annual combination
fishing and small-game hunting license will cost $10. It normally
sells for $33.

The 2009 Legislature approved the special license.

The veteran must present a Veterans Administration awards letter
from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs stating the veteran
has been granted a disability and it was service-connected.

The special license does not replace a free general hunting and
fishing license available to New Mexico veterans who are 100
percent disabled.
