Bobcats, NH Conservationists Featured in Latest Issue of N.H. Wildlife Journal
CONCORD, N.H. -- If you've ever walked in the forests of southwestern New Hampshire, there's a good chance that a pair of yellow eyes was watching your every move. Find out more about the amazing creatures behind those eyes -- bobcats -- in the November-December issue of New Hampshire Wildlife Journal magazine.
Another feature article in this issue of the Journal, the state's only magazine dedicated to fish and wildlife conservation and recreation, introduces some of New Hampshire's "Faces of Conservation" -- landowners and others dedicated to protecting open spaces, improving habitat and keeping lands open for wildlife recreation.
Hunters and cooks will enjoy this issue's tips for getting venison from the field to the freezer with the safest and most satisfying results.
Regular columns bring you Warden's Watch, Wild Ways, Kids Corner and more. In the current Naturalist's Notebook, find out how Northern river otters swim and slide through a cold winter. The November-December Conservation News section takes a look at the poorly understood White Nose Syndrome, a new ailment that could have a devastating impact on our bat populations.
