CONCORD, N.H. -- In the latest issue of New Hampshire Wildlife Journal magazine (September/October 2017), read how a seasoned bird hunter finds that his partnership with a dog adds a remarkable dimension to the hunting experience.

 

New Hampshire's turkey vultures are always busy scavenging the landscape for a good meal. Ever wonder why vultures have no feathers on their heads?  Learn why, and also about other turkey vulture behaviors in this issue.

 

Also in this issue, you might be surprised to learn just how important the annual production of "mast" -- fruits, nuts, and seeds -- is for wildlife. Biologists are heading into the woods this time of year to assess the "crop" so they can better predict wildlife harvest and understand population trends. Mast can even be an indicator of the likelihood of wildlife conflicts with humans!

 

In the "On the Nature Trail" column, you’ll pick up some fascinating facts about the prickly porcupine. The feature column "Wild Places" gives the reader a look at Mount Washington State Park, a 60-acre parcel perched atop the Northeast's highest peak.
