4) We only apply you for the units that fits your needs the best and in only the best units New Mexico has to offer. Me and my guides have lived and hunted in New Mexico all of our lives.  We know the units we hunt well.

NEW MEXICO'S DRAW HUNT SYSTEM

New Mexico's draw hunt system was designed to insure fairness and consistency in the draw. Draw hunt licenses are awarded by random computer drawing. Residents receive 84% of available licenses per hunt code, non-residents receive 16% of available licenses per hunt code. Non-residents who choose to use New Mexico outfitters will receive up to 10% of available licenses, non-residents who apply without a New Mexico outfitter or on their own will receive up to 6% of available licenses. The best approach is to back up the draw hunts with a landowner permit.

You may also apply your deposit towards any other hunt H&A Outfitters, Inc. offers.  When we are successful in drawing you a tag in the state draw, your entire $500 deposit will be applied towards your hunt price that you are locked in on. You will be billed accordingly to bring your deposit up to 50% of the total hunt cost within 30 days of the draw release date.
