CONCORD, NH -- The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department’s spring moose survey will be closing soon.  The public is being asked to submit photos of moose taken in New Hampshire from May 1 through May 15.

 

Images submitted should show one whole side of the moose (they should not be taken from in front of or behind the animal), and must be taken only during the May 1 through May 15 survey time period. Photos may be from cameras such as smartphone, 35mm, or trail cams.

 

Submit your photographs and learn more about the survey at www.wildnh.com/surveys/moose.html.

 

Fish and Game wildlife staff monitor moose around the state during the spring to help evaluate tick loads. These results are tabulated in the Moose Spring Hair Loss Survey. In an effort to expand the amount of information gathered in the survey, this year the Department is including photos taken by the general public.
