    I was hoping for 2 weeks early like 2 years ago but since it wasn't released yesterday, I'll say the 17th. I put in for dang near everything this year (except bighorn sheep, those odds are awful even by sheep standards). Maybe I'll get lucky and draw just one tag. Come on Ibex or elk!

    Someone from New Mexico told me that means not today.

    I am curious on how the change in requiring the non refundable license purchase will effect non-resident participation.

    I might stop a few applicants but not enough to make any difference in draw odds. I actually started applying for more species to offset that license cost.

    I predict more applicants this year than ever before

    Me too. I've always applied for elk and Barbary sheep, with deer, antelope, and oryx sprinkled in on some years. I figure with the extra $70 in non-refundable I'd apply for everything I'm interested in (except bighorn, odds are just too bad to justify loaning out that money to them for 2 months). Maybe that was their plan: instead of just getting to keep my $70 license fee they got an extra $52 in extra app fees from me too!

    Agreed! I think the only way to improve odds would be to limit the number of species we can apply for, similar to how Idaho does it or Utah does with the residents. They will never do it though, too much money to lose!

    I really like Idaho’s method. I for one would be in favor of sitting out a year after a q/hd draw. With the odds nm has it would help even it out

    The spectacle is upon us once again. Dreams will be realized yet most will be crushed. The most amazing countdown among all the draws The draw results are as unpredictable as the April weather in New Mexico. Not just will I draw but what week or day will they spring it in me! Could be a big week in the nm forum. Or maybe just more hollow anticipation...
