Moving there later this month. Looking for any help on understanding the draw system etc. From what I gather, there are NO OTC deer and elk hunts on public land? I did not apply for New Mexico this year and did not plan on living there either but work has me on my way.
I am an avid bow Hunter for elk especially. I go to Montana annually to bow hunt up there Non Res. Would like to have an opportunity to hunt New Mexico as resident this year as well. I understand it takes 90 days for that and I should be good to go before deer or elk season. At this point I would even take a cow tag if that means being able to get out in the New Mexico woods.
Is there any deer or elk tags I could still get my hands on? Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Leftover tags will be available during the summer months. Archery and muzzleloader deer for the most part. Keep an eye out on their website for more info.

I'm not going to buy some expensive landowner tag. Spent enough to go to Montana already in September. Just looking to see if there is anyway I would be able to hunt New Mexico this fall. Seems goofy they have no general tag hunts.

When do these leftover tags usually home out?
Anyway appreciate your guys time already.
