Wild Hogs, Snowshoe Hare Hunting, Lunker Lake Trout – All in the Latest Issue of New Hampshire Wildlife Journal
CONCORD, N.H. -- They're big, hairy, hungry and hopefully not coming to a neighborhood near you. Free-ranging feral swine have become one of the more serious wildlife problems in the United States, and New Hampshire has a confirmed, though small, population. Any presence is a concern, because razorbacks, as they are sometimes called, are extremely adaptable and can triple their population in a single year. Read the cover story in the new November/December 2011 issue of New Hampshire Wildlife Journal to find out more about these invaders and what's being done to prevent this destructive species from becoming established in New Hampshire.
Also in this issue, explore the thrills of snowshoe hare hunting, from the music of the hounds to the lure of the winter landscape (not to mention hearty hare stew). Plus, fisheries biologists Don Miller and Gabe Gries team up to profile New Hampshire's magnificent lake trout, huge fish that can live 40 years or more in our big lakes.
The Journal is the state’s only magazine dedicated to fish and wildlife conservation and recreation. Regular columns look at the white-breasted nuthatch, a frequent visitor to backyard birdfeeders, and what we're learning by tracking trout movement and deer productivity. Enjoy the humorous stories of Warden's Watch. Wild Places takes you to the popular hiking destination, Mount Kearsarge, which boasts two state parks on its slopes. Young readers will be wowed by the "Wildlife Warriors" Kids Corner – depicting animals fight for survival in the natural world.
