CONCORD, N.H. – You'll be watching closely for soaring red-tailed hawks after reading about these amazing birds of prey in the September/October 2013 issue of NH Wildlife Journal. These beautiful birds of the open country have adapted well to human environments and are often seen hunting over highways and fields.
The new issue of the Journal also explores the teamwork that goes into conserving wildlife habitat in New Hampshire. Over the past ten years, Fish and Game has contributed nearly $5 million to 50 land projects that have protected more than 45,000 acres of significant habitat. Hunters contribute directly to these efforts through Wildlife Habitat fees paid when they buy their licenses.
Next, get inspired to hit the autumn woods through the stories of new hunters who tried the Apprentice License last year. The new license was a big hit in its first year, with a total of 1,666 Apprentice Licenses sold in 2012. Of these 427 were purchased by women.
In Naturalist's Notebook, learn about the Eastern coyote, an adaptable predator now widespread in New England. Regular columns explore the fall spawning ritual of brook trout, conservation of the Hazelton Farm in Hebron, N.H., and true tales from Fish and Game Conservation Officers on the job in Warden's Watch.
