Hunting in New Hampshire: 3 Animals To Hunt in the Spring

By    |   Sunday, 31 May 2015 10:24 AM

Spring hunting in New Hampshire is somewhat limited, but a few species provide challenges for those motivated to head to the woodlands. While spring hunting excursions may be few, this is the time to plan for fall and winter hunting activities, when legal game is plentiful. Research permits that will be needed for specific game and apply in the spring. That way, your chances are good for receiving the tags and permits you want for later in the year. Look into areas that are designated for the game you desire, reserve camp spots and make plans for travel if needed.

The spring months in New Hampshire can be rainy or snowy, differing from year to year, so be prepared for any type of weather. Bring gear to keep you dry and warm as it is not unusual to see snow fall through the month of May. Here is a look at the species available to hunt in New Hampshire in the springtime.
  1. Turkeys
 - Turkeys are subject to dramatic fluctuations in reproduction success, and wildlife managers place limits on the numbers of birds that can be hunted throughout the state. The spring turkey season is in May, but several rules apply to where and when turkeys can be hunted. Check the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department regulations for licensing and other rules.
  2. Crows
 - Crows are classified as a synanthropic species, one that has adapted to people in their environment and thrives because of human activity. They eat crops and steal from trash cans. They are loud and, in general, nuisances. Crows are hunted for food and because of their annoying behaviors. The big, black birds are legal to hunt in late March, but hunters should study their habits to learn how to hunt them. Sean Hurley gives advice for "Crow Hunting in New Hampshire" on public radio, including tapes of seminars on the topic.
  3. Coyotes - 
Coyotes are native to North America, and this species is adaptable to environments, food supplies, and proximity to humans. The presence of coyotes affects the management of other species, and they threaten pets, property and humans in their paths.
