Top Turkeys, Fishing for Everyone, North Country Fly Fishing Memories

All in the Latest Issue of New Hampshire Wildlife Journal

NH Wildlife Journal Magazine cover - Spring Peeper by Gerry Lemmo

CONCORD, N.H. – The March/April 2012 issue of New Hampshire Wildlife Journal magazine gives you a chance to meet three very different first-time turkey hunters who took to the woods and succeeded in shooting their first turkey in New Hampshire last year: 86-year-old Bill Beall, Somersworth teenager Jackie Keleher, and forty-something hiker/paddler Marty Basch. Their stories capture the thrill of trying something new, whatever your age or inclination. Get ready to be inspired to try a new outdoor adventure yourself this year.
 
Also in the new issue, learn how anglers of all abilities are staying involved with a sport they love. With a few accommodations, disabled anglers are enjoying great success.  "Some guys think their lives are pretty much over, then they figure out there's nothing they can't do," says Alan Earl of the Paralyzed Veterans of America's national bass tour.

And travel north to a beloved fishing spot on a North Country river, shared by generations of sportsmen who revere its silent majesty and their connection to what has become, for them, a sacred place.

The Journal is the state’s only magazine dedicated to fish and wildlife conservation and recreation. In this issue, you'll unravel the mysteries of the tiny spring peeper, go underground to meet the northern short-tailed shrew, and hear about a shift in strategy for Atlantic salmon restoration.  Plus, enjoy the ever-popular exploits of New Hampshire's Conservation Officers in Warden's Watch.
