Agency says the roadblocks will be used throughout the state to collect harvest data and catch fish and wildlife law violators

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — The state Game and Fish Department is advising hunters and other outdoor travelers they might encounter delays during hunting seasons because of roadblocks that will be used around the state to collect harvest data and to apprehend fish and wildlife law violators.

The agency said in a news release Friday that department officers will begin conducting the roadblocks this fall, and may be assisted by other law enforcement agencies, including the U.S. Forest Service, U.S. Bureau of Land Management, State Police and county sheriffs’ departments.

At the roadblocks, conservation officers will check for compliance with hunting and fishing laws, and registration requirements and safety provisions of the Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Act, according to the news release. Drivers of vehicles hauling wood products will be asked to produce documentation required by the Forestry Conservation Act.
