"Ghost Moose," September Goose Hunting, Brood Stock Salmon – All in the Latest Issue of N.H. Wildlife Journal Magazine
CONCORD, N.H. -- Fall is in the air, and the latest issue of N.H. Wildlife Journal magazine (September/October 2011) celebrates two early fall activities enjoyed by New Hampshire outdoors enthusiasts: the September goose hunting season and fishing for Atlantic brood stock salmon. New Hampshire's growing population of resident Canada geese creates an exciting early season opportunity for hunters. These geese are not the long-distance migrants you hear honking overhead, but descendants of captive domestic geese once used as live decoys by hunters. Another story gives readers an inside look at a unique New England fishery that has challenged and thrilled New Hampshire anglers since 1993 – brood stock Atlantic salmon.
This issue also features an important story about "ghost moose." These animals, which have lost 80% or more of their hair, are a stark illustration of what thousands of parasitic winter ticks can do. You'll learn about the research going on to help biologists better understand this serious threat to the state's moose population.
The Journal is the state’s only magazine dedicated to fish and wildlife conservation and recreation. Regular columns in this issue include a Naturalist’s Notebook profile of the gray treefrog – a tiny woodland amphibian with a powerful voice. Wild Ways helps you identify hawks when you head out to view the September raptor migration. The real-life adventures of Fish and Game Conservation Officers in Warden's Watch will give you a smile. And you'll want to make reservations right away after reading about an exciting stay at Mollidgewock State Park in Errol. Young readers learn about monarch butterflies, the transformers of the insect world.
