HIDALGO COUNTY HERALD FRIDAY, MARCH 23, 2012 5 t Spring Turkey hunters: Buy your game-hunting license early, don't request refund Submitted by NM DEPT of GAME & FISH~Santa Fe Spring turkey hunters are re- minded that beginning this year, they are required to purchase a Game-hunting license before they can purchase a turkey license or apply for big-game licenses. Although hunters can request a refund in case they are unsuccess- ful in the draw, those who plan to hunt turkeys this spring are ad- vised not to request a refund or they risk having to pay for a sec- ond Game-hunting license if they are successful in the draw. and Fishing license online - not from a license vendor Turkey li- censes may be purchased online or from a vendor "If you plan to hunt turkeys this spring and you are applying for big-game licenses, your best option is to purchase a 2012- 2013 Game-hunting or Game- hunting and Fishing license and plan to use it all year," Depart- ment Director Jim Lane said. "The licenses not only will allow hunt- ers to apply for big-game li- censes, but also allow them to purchase a turkey license before Hunters who apply for big- the season opens April 15. and to game licenses must purchase their hunt small-game during the li- Game-hunting or Game-hunting cense year." Expect roadblocks statewide during hunting, fishing seasons Submitted by NM DEPT of GAME & FISH~Santa Fe The Department of Game and Fish will conduct roadblocks throughout the state during spring and fall hunting and fish- ing seasons to collect harvest data and to apprehend wildlife law violators New Mexico's fishing sea- son unofficially opens April 1. when new licenses are required. Spring turkey season opens April 15. At roadblocks, conservation officers also will check for com- pliance with provisions of the Off High~vay Motor Vehicle Act and the Aquatic Invasive Species Control Act. Drivers of vehicles hauling wood products will be asked to produce documentation as required by the Forestry Con- servation Act. Department officers may be assisted by other law enforcement agencies such as the U.S. Forest Service. Bureau of Land Manage- ment. New Mexico State Police or county sheriff's departments. As a result, the public may en- counter minor delays. To report a wildlife-law vio- lation, please contact your local Department of Game and Fish conservation officer or call the toll-free Operation Game Thief hotline at 1-800-432-GAME (4263). Callers can remain anony- mous and earn rewards for infor- mation leading to charges being filed. Hunters: Don't miss March 28 Game-hunting and Game- hunting and Fishing licenses are available only on the Department webs[re, www.wildlife.state., until March 29 when they will go on sale at license vendors statewide. The deadline to apply for big-game hunting licenses is March 28. Spring turkey season opens April 15. Hunters who se- lect the "refund" option and are successful in the draw will not receive their Game-hunting li- cense until the draw results are available in May. That means they will have to purchase a sepa- rate Game-hunting license to be eligible to buy a turkey license. Game-hunting licenses cost $15 for residents and $65 for non- residents. Turkey licenses cost $25 for residents and $100 for nonresidents. For more information about turkey hunting, license fees and requirements, or the big-game draw, please contact the Depart- ment of Game and Fish toll-free at (888) 248-6866.

"It is natural for children to explore-their surroundings, but very dangerous if they're getting under the kitchen sink or into the medicine cabinet where hazard- ous chemicals and adult medi- cines are kept." said Department of Health Cabinet Secretary, Dr. Catherine Torres. "Almost half of poison exposures for children under the age of 5 are caused by medicine." Approximately 100 children (14 years of age and younger) die each year from unintentional poi- soning and poison control cen- ters in the United States receive 1.2 million calls annually as a result of accidental poisoning (of children ages 5 and under) Nearly 90 percent of these toxic exposures occur in the home. and 56 percent involve non-pharma- ceutical products such as cosmet- ics. cleansers, personal care prod- ucts, plants, pesticides, art sup- plies, alcohol and toys. Active supervision and childproofing your home are necessary to keep- ing children safe. Safe Kids New Mexico re- minds pa(ents to learn the toll- free poison control center num- ber: 1-800-222-1222 and to keep it near every phone in your home and programmed it into cell phones. "This number connects you to the local poison control center from anywhere in the United States. "said Safe Kids New Mexico coordinator, John McPhee. "If a child is choking, having trouble breathing or hav- ing a seizure, call 911 instead. Follow the 911 Operator's instruc- tions. D,o not induce,vomiting or give the child any fluid or medi- cation unless directed." Safe Kids New Mexico offers these additional tips: giving medicine to your children. follow dosage directions care- fully.
