Hunter Education Requirement
Hunter Education is required of hunters* under 18 years of age to apply for, or buy, any type of firearms hunting license unless the youth is registered in the New Mexico Mentored Youth Hunting Program (youth 10 and over). Youth hunters must have proof of passing a state certified hunter education course and/or have a current MY number in their possession while hunting.*All hunters hunting McGregor/Ft. Bliss military installations are required to have hunter education. Bow Hunter Education is not mandatory, but is highly recommended.

Any hunter hunting on White Sands Missile Range(WSMR)is required to wear at least 244 square inches of blaze orange (approximately the size of a hunting vest). Hunters on Fort Bliss/ McGregor military reservations are required to wear a blaze orange hat and a blaze orange hunting vest and are also required to have hunter education prior to a scheduled hunt. Upland and big game hunters are strongly recommended to wear hunter orange.
