Hunters and anglers are encouraged to research potential outfitters before signing a contract. All of the businesses listed in the NMCOG Outfitter Directory have been fully vetted to ensure each individual is property licensed and registered to operate in the locations they advertise. NMCOG Outfitter members adhere to a strict policy which states that any Outfitter who is charged with a NM Dept. of Game and Fish violation that results in the suspension of an Outfitter license is an automatic revocation of their membership status with NMCOG.
Hunting and Fishing License Revocation Regulation
New Mexico’s draw quota system allocates big-game licenses and permits for residents and nonresidents who contract with a New Mexico outfitter and apply for a hunt. Allocations will be drawn from a pool of up to 10% of all available licenses or permits. Landowners and their agents are exempt from registration requirements but are not eligible to enter applicants to be drawn from the 10% outfitter pool.
