CONCORD, N.H. – The third season of North Woods Law, featuring the Conservation Officers of the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department who work tirelessly to preserve and protect New Hampshire’s natural resources, premieres Sunday, January 7, 2018, at 9:00 p.m. on Animal Planet.


New Hampshire is a prime destination for outdoorsmen and women because of its wild and rugged landscape, making the work of New Hampshire Conservation Officers diverse and demanding. This season on North Woods Law, the officers help solve a 19-year-old cold case involving a missing man with the use of new camera and sonar technologies; conduct multiple search and rescue missions, including a night rescue of an injured and exhausted teenager with autism from the windswept trails of Mount Washington; investigate hunters suspected to be involved in illegal activity; save a malnourished and disorientated hawk battling blindness; and gear up to help local police make an arrest on a massive marijuana growing operation.


“We’re excited about a third season rolling out,” said Fish and Game Law Enforcement Chief Col. Kevin Jordan.  “People have given us lots of positive feedback on the way the show has progressed so far. And just as we hoped, North Woods Law is serving to help the public understand the complexity of the work these officers are doing. Enjoy the new episodes!”


Earlier seasons of North Woods Law are available in their entirety on the Animal Planet Go app which allows Animal Planet audiences to catch up on full episodes of their favorite series and specials anytime, anywhere.


North Woods Law is produced for Animal Planet by Engel Entertainment where Steven Engel and Ben Shank serve as executive producers. For Animal Planet, Patrick Keegan serves as supervising producer.  To learn more, visit
