CWD Incentive License Winners
Michael Salmon of Albuquerque and Douglas Grant of Easley, S.C., are extremely lucky hunters. Last fall they had their deer or elk heads tested for Chronic Wasting Disease and this fall they were rewarded for participating.
Salmon will receive an authorization for the first bull elk hunt on the Valle Vidal Unit of the Carson National Forest. The hunt starts Oct. 11. Grant will receive an authorization to purchase an oryx license for White Sands Missile Range. He may choose to hunt during any regularly scheduled oryx season on the Range.
Kenneth Owens, a hunter from Odessa, Texas, selected the authorization recipients during a simple drawing at the Game and Fish office in Santa Fe Wednesday.
