The recently distributed Big Game Rules and Information Booklet (RIB) contains errors.

The fee for Ibex for residents of New Mexico is $69.00 not $63.00 as listed on Form3 page 59.

Some hunts are mistakenly listed as High Demand and should be Standard fee hunts. What follows is an updated list of all the High Demand hunts for Deer and Elk for the 2002-2003 hunting seasons. Only the Big Game Management Units and hunts listed below are considered High Demand. Some of these hunts also may be Quality/High Demand hunts. All Quality hunts listed in the RIB are correct.

Nonresident hunters applying for High Demand hunts must pay a higher fee. Some nonresident hunters already may have submitted the higher amount for a hunt incorrectly listed in the RIB as High Demand. Those hunters who successfully draw those hunts will receive a refund for the difference between the High Demand and the Standard fee. If they do not draw, they will receive all their money back, minus the $6 application fee.
