Can wild hogs be hunted all year round in NM? I have a niece who just moved to NM and I plan on visiting her next summer and maybe fall. I was wondering of the opportunity of hunting hogs in the so-called off-season. Any info will be a great help. Thanks in advance.
A non res needs to have any hunting licens in possession to hunt pigs, rabbits, skunks, or any non game animal. If a res is hunting on state or federal land they need to have the Habitat management and Habitat stamp, these are $4 & $5 bucks.
I have been wrong but that is the way I read the proclamation on non game animals.
I've been wanting to hunt these little beasties for years! I'd love it if any of the locals down that in the Roswell Artesia Lovington area would share a bit of info with a northern NM hunter.
I'd just like to know the best areas to start looking. I know the Pecos river seems to be the place but I also know there is a lot of private land down there. Do any private land owners need some pigs removed?
If so please get in touch.
Happy to bring down some Chimayo chile to willing hunters.
Let me start off by saying I am not a farmer.
I am a deer hunter and I do own a tractor and have all of the equipment - but that does not make you a farmer any more than standing in the garage makes you a car - well, you get the picture!
Having said that - and with most of my ineptitude fairly well hidden - I do think that buckwheat is one of the most under rated cover crops out there.
I say cover crop because I see mixed results as it relates to the deer eating the plants.
