On Monday, the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish stated they are going to be conducting roadblocks once again this hunting season.

The reason for the roadblocks are:

  • Collect important hunter harvest data
  • Detect wildlife law violations
  • Compliance with Off Highway Motor Vehicle Act and the Aquatic Invasive Species Control Act
  • People hauling wood products will be required to show documentation as required by the Forest Conservation Act

Other law enforcement agencies such as the U.S. Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, New Mexico State Police or county sheriff's offices may be on hand to assist in the roadblocks.
