NEW MEXICO STATE GAME COMMISSION Meeting / November 21 / Roswell

We are working on written comments to submit on the cougar rule and will have them out soon.

While not on this agenda, there is great effort to eliminate the law that was passed in the last few years ago clarifying that streambeds are private property and cannot be trespassed on.
