CONCORD, N.H. -- Don't miss a minute of outdoor action next year -- 2004 fishing and hunting licenses, good from January 1 through December 31, are now available online at www.nhfishandgame.com and at license agents across the state. Why wait for spring? Get yours today and you'll be set for ice-fishing action this January, trout opening in April and turkey hunting in May.
For New Hampshire residents, an annual fishing license costs $35; hunting, $24.50; and a combination (hunting and fishing) license is $48.50. Nonresidents can buy annual fishing licenses for $53 each; hunting licenses for $105.50; and combination hunting/fishing licenses for $143.50.

Gift certificates for 2004 licenses are a great idea for the outdoors enthusiast on your holiday list. Buy them at Fish and Game headquarters in Concord, or click here for a print-and-mail order form.
Fishing and hunting licenses are a great family value, too. Children under the age of 16 can fish in New Hampshire without a license, so bring them along to enjoy fresh air and great family fun year-round. Youths under age 16 also can hunt without a license in the company of a licensed hunter over the age of 18. Resident seniors age 68 and older are eligible for a free license to fish and hunt in New Hampshire.
The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department is the guardian of the state's fish, wildlife and marine resources. License fees directly support wildlife and fisheries management and education.
