Many additional species are available for hunting in New Hampshire in the fall. Check the New Hampshire Field and Game Department website for exact dates of open seasons for each species. The website also provides great information about choosing sites, obtaining proper licenses and tags, and hunter education programs. Here are three animals that can legally be hunted in the fall season.
  1. Wild Turkey
 - Just in time for Thanksgiving, fall turkey season runs from mid-September to mid-December. The birds are available for hunting in specific Wildlife Maintenance Units throughout the state. Once in a designated area, hunters can use calls, including the classic kee-kee call, or other clucks and purrs to attract turkeys.

  3. White-tailed Deer
 - White-tailed deer are legal to hunt in late fall and winter. Deer thrive in New Hampshire's woods and they live in family groups. Their home ranges stay within a square mile in wooded areas, where they can find leaves, buds, and twigs of trees and shrubs. The deer is an herbivore and grazes along trails in early morning and late afternoon.
  4. Moose
 - Moose are the largest members of the deer family, but unlike other deer, these creatures do not form herds and tend to live solitary lives. These magnificent beasts are plentiful in the state, and the New Hampshire Field and Game Department issues permits to hunt them in the fall by permit only. Applications for the permits are completed in spring, with an end of May deadline. Enter online, by mail or at any New Hampshire Field and Game Department licensing agent.
