Hunting

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.

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.  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 be sure to visit NH Fish & Game's website for more information on hunting in New Hampshire.
