Mark your calendars! If you missed out on a New Mexico elk tag, you have another chance. Starting at 10 am on November 2nd, late season elk licenses will be available at the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish's website . These will be available on a first come, first served basis, so the department is recommending that hunters get their account information set up before the sale. The late season is ;handled this way because the state biologists are actively collecting data to determine management needs, and then the late season is created after data has been collected.
About 275 archery elk hunting licenses will be available. Available late-season elk licenses include: Unit 12 - Nov. 19 to Nov. 23, 25 licenses; Unit 34 - Dec. 17 to Dec. 21, 200 licenses; Unit 37 - Dec. 3 until Dec. 7, 50 licenses.From Las Cruces Sun-News .
