Zone 12 regulates hunting opportunities for bear in New Mexico and covers 1,687 square miles. Public lands comprise 1,212 square miles (72%) of the total land covered by this game management unit. The greater region is best serviced by Alamogordo, Tularosa, and Holloman Afb. The elevation of the region ranges from a low of 4,000 feet to a high of 9,600 feet above sea level. Wildfires have burned nearly 3 acres here in the last two years, providing opportunities for new vegetation and attracting a variety of wildlife. This zone is a gateway to these forested areas: Lincoln National Forest. Additionally, 1 site is open to the public for access to managed private lands.
