Hunt New Hampshire’s big woods, where you can still walk for miles without seeing a house, a road, or another hunter – unless you want to. Hunt with your friends and family, the way hunting used to be.
We’ve got big bucks, gobblers galore, Sunday hunting, and special youth hunts. Add to that millions of acres of prime wildlife habitat—and you’ve got the setting for an unforgettable hunting experience!
It’s easy to get your New Hampshire hunting license. You can buy it online at www.huntnh.com—all you need is documentation of having bought a NH hunting license at some point since 2000; you can get your turkey, bear, and pheasant permits online as well. Or, visit one of 250 friendly NH license agents throughout the state.
Get started on your scouting by checking out the 2011 N.H. Wildlife Harvest Summary; it lists results for last year’s hunting seasons by WMU and town, including harvest statistics and hunting/trophy records. This, plus topo maps, Wildlife Management Area maps and info, and lots of basic information on hunting in New Hampshire, is at your fingertips at the Fish and Game website, www.huntnh.com.
When planning your trip, check out www.visitnh.gov to find ideas and deals on lodging, camping and good eats—and info on scenic drives, shopping and attractions along the way. To help you get the most out of your time afield, maybe this is the year to hire a licensed NH hunting guide (listed on the NH Fish and Game website at www.huntnh.com).
Need a little inspiration? National Hunting and Fishing Day is on Saturday, September 22, 2012. Join Fish and Game’s celebration by coming to our huge sporting expo in Concord that day from 10 to 2, with 40+ manufacturers’ reps, exhibits and demos – or pay a visit to our Owl Brook Hunter Education Center in Holderness on the 22nd, where hands-on shooting activities, seminars, raffles and pro staff will keep the whole family busy. For details, check www.wildnh.com/nhfday.
Since you’re reading this, chances are you’re already getting your gear ready and counting the days until your first New Hampshire hunt of the season. If not…what are you waiting for? Plan your NH hunting adventure today!
