New Mexico Hunting License Application Services



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.

14.H&A Outfitters, Inc. is not a booking agent like so many big names in the hunting industry: Gohunt, WTA TAGS, Huntin' Fools, just to mention a few.  They all offer an application service, and some may float the tag price, but they all charge you per species annually.  Then when you successfully draw a tag, they send you away to an outfitter that they probably never even hunted with or know if they have guides that even have extensive knowledge of the unit that you drew a tag in.  Basically, they want their commission and that in itself brings the price up to you, the consumer.  We will never use a booking agent to book our hunts.  Our fully guided application service is FREE.  Most of the species we apply you for don't even require a deposit and the ones that do are elk, deer and pronghorn and the minimal deposit will be subtracted from your hunt price once we draw a tag on your behalf. 

15.  H&A Outfitters, Inc. is your outfitter from start to finish.  The buck stops here!  110% effort and dedication with your best interests in mind, not ours.
