CONCORD, N.H. — In the latest issue of New Hampshire Wildlife Journal magazine (September/October 2018), a seasoned hunter and retired Conservation Officer shares his insights on how to thoughtfully prepare for a successful and safe deer season out in the field.

Once trapped to the brink of extinction, New Hampshire is now home to a fascinating and stable population of semi-aquatic freshwater mammals. Learn how beaver, muskrat, and river otter are perfectly adapted for life in a wetland habitat. While all three species are industrious, discover the differences in their behaviors that make these mammals unique.

Also in this issue, experience an avid archer’s transition from compound bow hunting to the “stick and string” method. Long bows recall a centuries-old approach to hunting and present distinctive challenges that energize modern hunters.  In this issue, learn about the four types of bows available today and which one might be right for you.

In the “On the Nature Trail” column, read interesting facts about the adaptable American kestrel, a small falcon that utilizes fence posts and wires to conserve energy while hunting.  Just in time for leaf peeping, “Wild Places” takes the reader to Jericho Mountain State Park, which features 85 miles of trails and scenic views in the heart of New Hampshire’s Great North Woods.
