Hunting in New Hampshire: 3 Animals to Hunt Year-round

By    |   Sunday, 31 May 2015 09:41 AM

Hunting in New Hampshire can take place year round, but most hunting is scheduled by open seasons for specific species. Because of the diligent work of the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department, the state enjoys healthy outdoor wildlife populations, open land for hunting and wildlife breeding, clean public waters, and helpful guides to the great outdoors. The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department has managed the state's programs for more than 150 years, ensuring resources that contribute to a healthy economy and great lifestyle for residents.

Generally, spring and summer are the seasons of breeding and raising young animals. Fall and winter are the busy times, when several big game species are open to hunters, and migratory patterns of several birds, including waterfowl, bring game into the state. Few animals are designated for year-round hunting, but hunters can pursue the following as long as local guidelines allow the activity. Here are three animals that can be hunted in New Hampshire all year:
  1. Coyotes - 
Coyotes are an adaptable species and threaten food supplies and the safety of both animals and humans, especially livestock. As a nuisance animal, they are allowed to be hunted year-round by the state as the presence of coyotes impacts the management of other species.
  2. Feral Hogs - 
Although this animal has no game status in New Hampshire, they can be found both on public and private lands. These animals are very destructive, invading the food supplies meant for livestock and pets. They also carry disease. Hunters must get permission from private landowners and the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department must grant permission for hunting roaming boars on state-owned properties. Hunters can pursue these animals throughout the year, but a hunting license is required.

  4. Rock Doves
 - More commonly known as pigeons, rock doves are common in major cities throughout the world. The birds are typically gray, blue, or some variation of the two colors and they live on food scraps and trash. Look for them near grain crops, under bridges and in rocks.
