New Mexico Turkey Hunters Issued Two Tags With License

Beginning this year, hunters will be issued two tags with their spring turkey license, unlike previous years when hunters had to purchase a second tag.

One tag can be used for a turkey taken in open units statewide, including the special draw areas. The second tag can be used only in units open to a two-turkey bag limit, which excludes the draw areas.

Spring turkey season opens Thursday and runs through May 10 in most areas of the state. Hunters are advised to check the 2010-2011 Big Game Rules and Information booklet before their hunt for information about areas open to a two-turkey bag limit.
