Elk NetworkNew Mexico Roadblocks to Collect Data, Detect Violations

General | August 12, 2019

The New Mexico Department of Game and Fish set up roadblocks throughout the state during hunting seasons to collect harvest data and to detect wildlife law violations.  

Conservation officers may be assisted by other agencies such as the U.S. Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, New Mexico State Police or county sheriff’s offices. As a result, the public may encounter minor delays. 

At roadblocks, conservation officers also will check for compliance with the Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Act. Drivers of vehicles hauling wood products will be asked to produce documentation as required by the Forest Conservation Act. 

Anyone who witnesses questionable behavior may call (800) 432-GAME (4263).
