i regret to inform you that bosque del apache is closed for hunting. they do have a yearly goose hunt draw but i dont apply for fear of being attacked by bird watching tree huggers (they're everywhere). i would love to hunt there it's a wet dream for most NM waterfowl hunters but its not likely you'll be able to hunt there
BLAM!...hehehe

based on last years snow goose hunts and what the biologists of the park had told all of us the next season after this comming one they are planning to open a draw hunt similar to the snow goose ones for duck... lets just hope it passes and they allow quiet a few people in on them

i have no idea, but they said since their snow hunts have been decreasing with the numbers taken that they were looking to increase odds by doing away with the goose hunts, but allowing hunters to shoot snows if they did fly by while duck hunting.... just dont get why it has taken them this long to figure it out.

Fallout from the Fund for Animals lawsuit that shut down new hunt programs on refuges for several years. After the lawsuit was settled there are a lot more hoops refuges have to jump through to open a hunt...Environmental Impact Review, NEPA, public comment, then has to be approved by Congress during the CFR approval period which is once a year before a hunt can be implemented. Now a multi year process.
Conserve, promote, protect and enhance...then harvest!
