Fill out an application here!

This FREE  hunt is open to ages 11 to 18.  Participants must have completed their Hunter Education Certification and must be accompanied by an adult over 18 years of age.

Hunt camp is open to a total of 5 youth participants on a first-come-first-serve basis, but preference will be given to those that have never possessed a New Mexico hunting license.

All meals, shotguns (or you can bring your own), ammo, and other needed equipment will be provided by First in the Field and the NM Department of Game and Fish.  Tents and other camping equipment will be provided or you may also bring your RV or camper.  A full packet with maps, supply list, and other details will be provided after registration.

Hunter's arrival will be staggered starting the evening of April 5th.  All hunters will be able to hunt 2 full days.  Schedule will be determined based upon available slots and order of registration. 

Hunters will participate in a hunter education refresher, will spend time on a shotgun range and then will hunt turkeys with expert mentors.  There will also be talks on game bird ID, rules and regulations, and turkey habitat.

Come join us for an amazing weekend of learning, hunting, and fun!
