Upon approval of the plan the landowner may be granted alternative season dates as approved by the department.

These private licenses shall have access to the deeded and leased public land within the hunting ranch boundary during the respective pronghorn hunt. The landowner shall allow access to the deeded and leased public land to all legally licensed public draw hunters pursuant to Subsection A of Section 19.31.15.13 NMAC for the respective game management unit. Any ranch entered into such an agreement shall be issued one authorization valid for a free pronghorn license pursuant to 17-3-14 NMSA 1978.

                C.            Private land-only F-IM pronghorn hunts:  The department will work with interested landowners with sufficient pronghorn populations to authorize F-IM hunts on private deeded land. Sporting arms type, hunt dates, eligibility requirements or restrictions and authorization numbers for private deeded land F-IM hunts will be negotiated to maintain appropriate harvest within the exterior boundaries of participating ranches.
