They’re called “youth encouragement elk hunting licenses” and more than 1,900 of them go on sale by the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish. Almost 1,500 of the licenses are for hunters using any legal weapon and 390 others licenses are for hunters using a muzzleloader or bow.
The licenses go on sale July 5 on a first-come, first-served basis. The first 14 days are open only to New Mexico residents. Out-of-state youth are eligible to acquire licenses beginning on July 19.
