Pinons are on BLM land but the fires and insects have devastated them Check with the USDA when they reopen for Santa Fe, Cibola and Gila National forests. Pinon are around Mount Taylor, Catron County etc..

Suggest you just buy them from many who sell them off the web site before you just leave out and trounce on someone's property or government property.

Government land? BLM? No one talked about "trouncing" on other people's land. And it is PUBLIC land. Try to police the BLM and National Forests.
And yes for around $20/lb and higher you can find pinon nuts shelled and ready (Costco). But it does take the fun out of it. Like buying a christmas tree from a lot versus tramping around on other people's property to cut one down.

tsk tsk tsk, missing your weekly sheephearders sandwich are you? Lambchop cut you off already did she? What is a sheephearders sandwich you ask? Why it's a glass of milk and a piece of EWE!

Now go soak your sox in kerosene so the ants won't crawl up your legs and eat your candy ass there Mr Chemtrail huffer.

Go back under your bridge and leave Piñon picking to smart people.

I'm well aware that BLM Federal land is available for public use. you don't just go out and pick up plants, rocks, soil, etc., without specifically known what is allowed. Big fines and confiscation of your property for being dumb. You don't trounced @ on private property or government, public owned property without nosing rules. I suggest you call them to find out the ifs and can I.

Lol, to the Chemtrail Okie who thinks the Rio Grande runs thru OKC, BLM means Baahhhh Lamb & Mutton. Kinda like your marriage to Lambchop.

Unlike you, we in NM know who to ask should the need arise. Given that Piñon's tend to come in heavy in 7 year cycles its always smart to ask what part of the state may be getting the heavier crop, hence the original posters question. Just because you'd probably trash someone's private property, most here are quite good at asking permission, and certainly smart enough to contact the proper entity regarding picking.

You may now return to the underside of your bridge or graze where I40 & I35 cross - Bahhhhhhhhhh...

Which, if you read my post, I did. And seems that people are doing it all around the country. Ever walked the Pacific Crest Trail? The Long Trail? The Appalachian? You seem to think that people can't go out and act like Boy Scouts without government rangers sitting in their visitor's building. Ever been out at El Malpais? Ever been out on a trail and never saw another soul for 2 weeks? You use common sense. You have to ask what is allowed? Yeah, like people who have homes on National Park land being asked to leave. And what is with you and private property? You are the only one who seems to think that if one goes out for a hike or an outing that they are going to trespass and 'trounce". That never happened before the shut down?

Seems like you have more than someone asking about pinons to worry about.

Yeah, ask permission before going out on the Government's land and then wait until they are there to tell you what to do once you are there.

Forest Service - SF national forest

Gathering piñon nuts is a local tradition on the Santa Fe National Forest. No permit is required to gather up to one (1) bushel of piñon nuts for personal use.

BLM NM

A permit is not required for those who gather
nuts as a recreational pursuit. The reasonable amount considered to be for recreational or
personal use is 25 pounds.

Thank You. Great information and am glad that someone knew how to research or gather this. Should be of assistance.

Yeah, we weren't talking private property. We were talking National Forests and BLM. Cattle guard? You mean those thingys on the ground?

Or the ones I can drive over? You got Pinons in Okie?
