It's my understanding you cannot choose who you transfer it to. You can turn it back in, without a refund, and NMDGF will pass it along to a list of candidates (for example, make a wish, wounded warrior).
If you could choose who to transfer it to, everybody would have their grandma, uncle, deaf aunt, etc. apply for tags and have whoever draws give them the tag.
I do believe in the case of death it may be transferred to immediate family member.
Bottom line, call NMDGF and ask the details first hand.
On another note his guide said that currently if you fly into NM you have to quarantine for 14 days. Wonder how that is going to work out for NR coming to the State.
The deep state is alive and well in NM. There is a governor in charge with task forces doing surveillance on travel into the state via airport and Facebook postings of residents leaving and coming back. Also watching people's movements via their tracking on smart phones.
Supposed to isolate even if you drive, because in her words, "you're bringing the virus with you". This chick has been watching too many episodes of 'The Walking Dead' and is starting to think it's all real.
If I were a non resident and my hunt was compromised by these "mandates", I'd be giving game and fish a call requesting a full refund including app fee...
