Foundation, agencies team up on easement for hunter access


RESERVE, N.M. (AP) – A Missoula, Montana-based foundation has announced it has teamed up with two New Mexico state agencies to provide hunter access to 81 square miles of public and state trust land in Catron County in west-central New Mexico.

The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation said Monday the effort will provide an easement for hunters to use a road that provides the only access to state trust land that is wildlife habitat in the Luera Mountains.

The foundation said the project to provide funding for the easement also involves the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish and the New Mexico Land Office.

Terms of arrangements made to secure the easement were not released, and a foundation spokesman did not immediately respond to a request for comment. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
