Fish & Game Wants Your Help Setting Big Game Population Goals
CONCORD, N.H. -- Wish there were more moose or bears in your neck of the woods? Are turkeys gobbling your garden? Not enough whitetails -- or is the number of deer just about right in your region? Two open house sessions coming up with New Hampshire Fish and Game give you a chance to weigh in on these issues and more. The sessions will be held on April 26, 2005, at N.H. Fish and Game headquarters on Hazen Drive in Concord; and on April 28, 2005, at Fish and Game's Region 1 Office at 629B Main Street in Lancaster. At each location, the open houses will be held from 3:30-5:00 p.m. and again from 6:30-8:00 p.m. Participants can stop in at any time during the session.
Fish and Game is looking for input on proposed ten-year population goals for deer, bear, moose and turkey, presented in the draft Big Game Management Plan for 2006-2015. Click here to read the draft plan (PDF File, 524 KB). Public input from the open house sessions will be factored in as Fish and Game determines its population management goals and objectives for these species over the next ten years.
Those interested in offering written comments on the plan may send them by May 5, 2005, to: email@example.com (subject line should say "Big Game Plan"); or mail to Big Game Plan, Wildlife Division, N.H. Fish and Game Department, 11 Hazen Drive, Concord, NH 03301; or fax to (603) 271-1438.
