Judge issues ruling in fight over NM hunting law

March 23, 2012 • State News

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — A federal judge on Thursday sided partly with a group of outfitters from four Western states who complained their constitutional rights to conduct business in New Mexico were being upended by changes to the state’s hunting draw.

The outfitters had asked U.S. District Judge Christina Armijo to issue an injunction and temporary restraining order to keep New Mexico’s law from taking effect.

The outfitters are challenging language that specifies 10 percent of hunting tags awarded through New Mexico’s annual big game draw would go to those hunters who hired New Mexico-based outfitters.
