CONCORD, N.H. -- In the latest issue of New Hampshire Wildlife Journal magazine (July/August 2017) explore the magical world of moths, one of the most misunderstood but widespread and ecologically important group of insects in the world. Beautiful and accessible, there are over 2,000 species in New Hampshire!


Anglers will also enjoy reading about coastal squid fishing.  Try your hand at catching this peculiar species, and learn about its handling from hook to plate, including tips on rig setup and a delicious calamari recipe.


You can also read about an adventure in apprentice hunting -- one woman's first expedition out on a game bird hunt. This story covers apprentice hunting basics, from gearing up to heading afield with a trained bird dog.


In the column "On the Nature Trail," learn some fun facts about the garter snake, one of New Hampshire's eleven snake species.  The feature column "Wild Ways" gives the reader a look at Appledore Island, home to the Shoals Marine Laboratory, off the New Hampshire coast. And the ever-popular "Warden’s Watch" brings you a fresh batch of stories from Fish and Game Conservation Officers.
