CONCORD, N.H. -- While you’re having fun at the Hopkinton and Lancaster Fairs on Labor Day weekend, visit the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department exhibits – a great way to explore hunting, fishing and wildlife watching opportunities in our state.
The Hopkinton State Fair (August 29 - September 2, 2013, hsfair.org) once again will host a special Discover Wild New Hampshire Building presented by the N.H. Fish and Game Department, this year featuring the full-sized "Forever Locked" battling bull moose exhibit. See wildlife mounts, live hawks (Monday only) and fish. Meet wildlife and fisheries biologists and Conservation Officers. Buy your hunting license for this fall right at the fair, and pick up the new Hunting Digest!

The Fish and Game building will be open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday, August 29, through Sunday, September 1; and from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Monday, September 2, 2013.

In northern New Hampshire, Fish and Game continues its long-standing tradition of presenting an exhibit at the Lancaster Fair (August 28-September 2, 2013). Stop by and talk to Fish and Game biologists and Conservation Officers; they'll be glad to answer your questions about fishing, hunting, wildlife watching and Off-Highway Recreational Vehicle (OHRV) safety and ethics. It's a great chance to pick up Fish and Game publications, including the new NH Hunting and Trapping Digest, which is hot off the press. Find more about the Lancaster Fair at lancasterfair.com.
