Bobcats, Beaver Trapping, Winter Stream Fishing – All in NH Wildlife Journal

CONCORD, N.H. – Delve into the shadowy world of New Hampshire's elusive bobcats in the January-February 2014 issue of NH Wildlife Journal. Biologists are studying the abundance, health and habits of the state's wildcats, which are making quite a comeback.

Also in this issue, walk the trapline with a hardy outdoorsman who traps beaver under the ice, mostly to help landowners control flooding and loss of timber. David O'Hearn is a licensed New Hampshire trapper carrying on a tradition that transcends the centuries.

Ice-fishing isn't the only game in town this time of year for determined Granite State anglers. A feature by fisheries biologist Andrew Schafermeyer explores open-water winter fishing, with tactics for river and stream anglers and a fascinating look at what life is like for fish during the coldest months of the year.

Naturalist's Notebook features that fun-to-catch fish, the yellow perch. Wild Ways takes readers on a snowmobile tour of Sullivan County.  As always, the issue includes the popular Warden's Watch column, with tales from the day-to-day adventures of Fish and Game Conservation Officers.
