Spaulding Wildlife Management Area
Acquisition History: The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department purchased Spaulding WMA from Robert and Margaret Spaulding in 1984 with funding provided by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Wildlife Restoration Program, for the purpose of protecting deer wintering habitat in the region.
Description: Spaulding WMA abuts Hubbard Hill State Forest at its northernmost point and lies just south of Hubbard Hill itself. The property is forested, mostly in hemlock, and acts as a wintering area for deer and other wildlife. A saddle between two small peaks that bisects the property north to south likely acts as a travel corridor for wildlife.
Common Wildlife: This property supports deer, black bear, turkey, grouse, snowshoe hare, and coyote.
Directions: Spaulding WMA can only be accessed on foot through Hubbard Hill State Forest.
