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.
Hinge-cutting serves several purposes in regard to improving both whitetail habitat and your hunting experience. There are two main types of hinge cuts including a cut for screening and funnels and a cut for bedding. Hinge cuts for screening and funnels should be done somewhere between the knee and waist to block a deer's vision as well as block a travel path. Hinge cuts for bedding should be done around chest high so that there is room for a deer to bed underneath.
