Game & Fish Roadblocks on the way

Wood Gatherers Anglers and Hunters, Have Your Papers Ready

Contribution From The Jemez Daily Post 

Law enforcement agencies, led by the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish (NMDGF) will be conducting roadblocks throughout the state during the hunting and fishing seasons to check for compliance with the Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Act and the Aquatic Invasive Species Control Act.

Also, drivers of vehicles hauling wood will be asked to produce documentation as required by the Forest Conservation Act.

Aside from the NMDGF agents, the roadblocks will feature the U.S. Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, New Mexico State Police and county sheriff’s officers. They will be collecting harvest data and looking to detect wildlife law violators.

There have been numerous rule changes for this season; anglers and hunters are advised to contact a Game and Fish area office in their areas for details. To report a wildlife-law violation, contact a Game and Fish area office in Santa Fe, Albuquerque, Raton, Roswell or Las Cruces, or call the toll-free Operation Game Thief hotline at (800) 432-GAME (4263). Callers can remain anonymous and earn rewards for information leading to charges being filed.
