North Woods Law: NH

Watch Season 3! North Woods Law: New Hampshire features the Conservation Officers of the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department who work tirelessly to preserve and protect the natural resources of the Granite State.


New Hampshire's wild and rugged landscape makes the state a premiere destination for outdoorsmen and women and makes the work of Conservation Officers diverse and demanding. They are tasked with enforcing all laws, rules and regulations pertaining to the state's fish, wildlife, recreational vehicles, and marine resources and they prosecute all of their own cases involving offenders of wildlife law.
