The deadline to file a free report for hunters who held 2014-15 deer, elk, antelope or turkey licenses is Feb. 15, 2015. After that date, an $8 late fee will apply. Hunters must report on or before the March 18 application deadline or their applications will be rejected from the big-game draw.
The deadline to report for those who held 2014-15 Barbary sheep, javelina, oryx, ibex, or trapping licenses is April 7, 2015. The later harvest-reporting deadline allows license holders for those species to submit results after the seasons have closed.
Hunters and trappers can file their mandatory harvest report online at https://onlinesales.wildlife.state.nm.us by logging in to their account and clicking “Harvest Reporting” in the main menu. Reports also can be submitted by phone toll-free at (888) 248-6866 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Hunters have until close of business Feb. 13 to report by phone, as department offices will be closed Saturday, Feb. 14, and Sunday, Feb. 15.
The department encourages hunters and trappers to keep their confirmation number for their records and to update their account information and provide a valid email address so they can receive important information, confirmation emails and receipts from the department.
Please remember that failure to file a mandatory harvest report on time will result in rejection of all big-game applications.
