CONCORD, N.H. -- The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department will hold its biennial hearings in November in Lancaster and Concord to hear the public's suggestions about any aspect of Fish and Game operations.
The hearings, held in odd-numbered years, provide the public an opportunity to make comments on, and suggest changes to, fishing and hunting rules, wildlife management strategies and other Fish and Game functions.
The Lancaster hearing will be held Tuesday, November 18, at 6:30 p.m. at Fish and Game's Region 1 office on Route 3 (629 Main Street) in Lancaster. The Concord hearing will be held Wednesday, November 19, at 6:30 p.m. at Fish and Game's headquarters on Hazen Drive in Concord.
"The biennial hearings are a great opportunity for anglers, hunters and other who care about wildlife in New Hampshire to come and speak their mind," said Lee E. Perry, Executive Director of Fish and Game. "I look forward to meeting many of our constituents and hearing what they have to say."
Perry and other Department staff will be joined by members of the Fish and Game Commission at the hearings, and all will be available to answer questions.
