Nongame Hunting And Coyote-Killing Contests Prohibited On Wildlife Management Areas

-

ALBUQUERQUE -- The New Mexico State Game Commission prohibits coyote-killing contests and the hunting of nongame species, including rabbits, prairie dogs or coyotes on its Wildlife Management Areas.

Only one Wildlife Management Area, Water Canyon, allows hunting for nongame species as a management tool for the non-native Himalayan tahr, a large ungulate related to the wild goat.

Commission-owned properties such as Edward Sargent, Heart Bar, Lake Roberts, Pecos Canyon properties and the Rio Chama, provide wildlife safe places during crucial breeding and wintering times.

Those locations also give visitors opportunities to access some of the most beautiful and wild places in New Mexico. Visitors to these areas must abide by all restrictions and posted notices.
