NM 2019 Hunting
The NM drawing process is completely random. Each person is assigned a random number and then they go first to last looking at their 1st, 2nd and 3rd choices on their application and give tags based on availability.
Application 1/15-3/20, results posted 4/30.
I tend to steer people away from NM because it is more expensive and getting a license is difficult. We do have NM hunts and may have vouchers available but are limited. NM doesn’t do preference points so you can build them up and know when you will draw a license. And for non-residents they limit the number to an extremely low percentage, something like 10% or less. CO has more elk than all the other states put together. And if you want a good time and to see a lot of elk CO is the state to come to.
