FARMINGTON — The New Mexico Department of Game and Fish is taking public input on big-game hunting rules on Wednesday.
The meeting will be at 6 p.m. at the Farmington Civic Center, Rooms A and B, 200 W. Arrington St., in Farmington.
Officials will solicit ideas, questions and concerns from the public over proposed hunting rules. The department reviews and revises rules every four years. The first involves rules for hunting deer, ibex, oryx, elk, Barbary sheep, bighorn sheep, javelina and pronghorn. The department also is seeking input over rules for hunting turkey and migratory game-birds.
Input from the meeting will "help influence rules and license numbers of hunting seasons for 2015 through 2019," according to a department press release.
Proposed adjustments to the rules are available by clicking on the "public comments" tab at the department's website, www.wildlife.state.nm.us.
Input received at the meeting will be considered by the State Game Commission. Rules will be finalized by the commission later this year.
