New Mexico leftover draw licenses go on sale July 21

62 deer and 7 youth-only pronghorn licenses that were not issued during the annual 2021-2022 big-game draw will go on sale at 10 a.m. MDT July 21, through the Department’s Online License System.

New Mexico residents will get first shot at the licenses for the first 24 hours of the first-come, first-served sale. If any licenses remain after the first 24 hours, the sale will be opened to nonresidents at 10 a.m. July 22.

To buy a leftover license, hunters must possess an annual Game Hunting or Game Hunting and Fishing license. Hunters may buy the Game Hunting license, the Habitat Stamp and the Habitat Management Access Validation by logging into their account and clicking the Over-The-Counter (OTC) Licenses, Permits and Stamps link under License Sales 2021. After the Game Hunting license has been purchased, click the 2021-2022 Leftover Draw Licenses link to go to the sale.

Hunters are strongly encouraged to be logged in and review their account before the sale begins. Licenses often sell out in minutes, sometimes seconds, after sales begin.

Hunters are advised that they must provide a valid mailing address at the time of purchase. A license/tag will be mailed to the hunter for all approved purchases within 14 days of the purchase, unless the e-tag option is selected.
