Hunting & Fishing in New Hampshire

Turn off the reality shows, don camo, and head out into New Hampshire's tidal waters with a buddy or two to set decoys and take aim at ducks. Hire a licensed hunting guide, who’ll show you the tricks of stalking black bears with dogs. Spend a week at a hunting lodge in New Hampshire's Great North Woods and your patience may earn you a trophy whitetail. Enter the annual lottery for a coveted chance to hunt moose. Harvest a New Hampshire turkey (we have about 40,000 wild gobblers) for your Thanksgiving table.

Wade into our rivers and fly-fish for brookies, trout, and largemouth bass. Head to our northern lakes to chase prized landlocked salmon. Paddle out to the middle of a serene pond and wait for a pike to bite. Teach a child the joys of casting from shore. Or book a deep-sea fishing charter and try to reel in a massive striper or bluefish.

New Hampshire has more than 200,000 acres of state land, 750,000 acres of national forest, and thousands more acres of private land open to hunting. Plus more than 900 lakes, miles of stocked rivers, and beautiful coastal and estuarine waters for freshwater and saltwater fishing. In short, New Hampshire is a sportsman's paradise. And a sportswoman's bliss, too: New Hampshire Fish and Game offers workshops specifically for women who want to learn hunting, fishing, and firearms skills.

Purchase a New Hampshire resident or nonresident fishing, hunting, or combo license online day or night. Visit the Owl Brook Hunter Education Center in Holderness for learning and training opportunities and insights. And consider hiring a local hunting or fishing guide service to enhance your chances of success.
