Licensing:

New Mexico Private Land Premium Hunts:

If you’re not familiar with New Mexico Private Land licensing, this is how it works;
Hunters buy a hunting license from the State of New Mexico Game & Fish Department. Backcountry Outfitters will then provide each hunter with the proper game tag. The tag is then joined to the individual license at a New Mexico Game & Fish Department office when you arrive in New Mexico for your hunt. The process is simple and there is no lottery. As soon as you book your hunt, you have a game tag reserved.

New Mexico Unit Wide Hunts:

The licensing process for a “Unit Wide” tag is the same for the private land only tags. The difference in the hunting package is that we will be hunting on Unit Wide public & private land as opposed to exclusive use private land. This means that we can hunt all public land in the unit as well as any private land that is designated as “Unit Wide”. The license cost is less and thus the price of the hunt is also less.

New Mexico Limited Draw Hunts:

The deadline for Deer, Elk, Pronghorn Antelope, Ibex, Javelina, Big Horn Sheep, & Barbary Sheep in New Mexico is March 28, 2011. Anyone can register and apply online at https://onlinesales.wildlife.state.nm.us/

New Mexico Exotic Species Hunts:

New Mexico Exotics such as Oryx and Barbary sheep are limited draw and have an application deadline. Dates and regulations change from year to year, so we recommend adding yourself to our mailing list so we can remind you of upcoming deadlines. If you like, provide your information to us, and we’ll take care of the application process for you1

Utah Hunting:

All Utah hunts are lottery drawings. Our suggestion is for you to work with Backcountry Outfitters to customize your own Utah Big Game Hunting Personalized Application Package. That way, you can capitalize on our knowledge to achieve the greatest odds in securing the right tags in the right areas. We know Utah, so you don’t have to!
