New Rule for Purchasing 2005 Special Archery Deer Permits

CONCORD, N.H. -- Hunters who want to buy a 2005 special archery deer permit, valid for taking one additional antlered deer using bow and arrow during the archery deer season, must now purchase the permit at the same time they buy their archery license. As of this year, the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department does not sell the special archery deer permits separately. The permits cost $16.

"Archery hunters will not have the option of adding a special deer permit later as they could before," said Fish and Game Licensing Supervisor Susan Martin. "If hunters want that extra permit, they need to get it when they buy their archery license or they'll be out of luck this year."

In 2004, Fish and Game sold 18,803 archery hunting licenses and 7,419 special archery deer permits.

Licenses and permits can be purchased from license agents throughout the state, or click here to purchase online.

The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department is the guardian of the state's fish, wildlife and marine resources and their habitats.
