CONCORD, N.H. -- Even with a minor league baseball team named in its honor, the fisher gets a bad rap – blamed for everything from missing house cats to howls in the night.  Now you have a chance to learn all about New Hampshire’s misunderstood mustelid in the latest issue of New Hampshire Wildlife Journal magazine (January/February 2017).


Also in this issue, prepare to smile as writer Frederick Prince teams up with wildlife biologist/cartoonist Will Staats to poke fun at -- and celebrate – the wintry world of the ice-fishing bobhouse village.


Those of you who enjoy a good wildlife mystery will love learning about programs available to help you earn your wildlife tracking certification. You, too, can join the elite club of people who like to puzzle out the stories around animal tracks!


Regular columns include an intriguing focus on snow fleas, which look like a handful of ashes on top of the snow on warming late-winter days. Don’t worry -- they won’t bite!  Warden’s Watch brings a fresh batch of entertaining stories from Conservation Officers in the field.
