Decision on deer hunt delayed

(Albuquerque-AP) -- The state Game Commission has tabled a pair of controversial proposals involving New Mexico’s declining deer herds.

The commission says it will take up the proposals during its meeting in July.

One measure would increase the number of antler points a male deer would need to be considered legal quarry for hunters.

Biologists say restricting the size of buck deer that New Mexico hunters shoot won’t help the population and could actually reduce the numbers of larger bucks because those animals would be targeted.

The second proposal would allow ranchers in limited hunting regions to have as much deer hunting on their own land as they wanted.

The proposal is intended to provide an economic incentive for ranchers to improve their deer habitat.
