Good morning. It’s Freedom New Mexico’s Wednesday briefing.

Caution please

The New Mexico Department of Game and Fish is asking anglers, campers and hikers to be aware of fire restrictions and bears.

Check fire restrictions before travel.

Also note: Fireworks are banned in all 105 wildlife areas the department owns or leases.

Avoid unpleasant encounters with bears by using “bear-aware” camping practices. Here’s a link:
