1. State law requires all hunters to possess a current license and appropriate tags while hunting on public or private property.

2. Anyone applying for a hunting, archery, or trapping license in New Hampshire must have completed the hunter or trapper education course offered by the state. Classes are conducted from January to October. Students can register online.

3. Hunter education courses cover gun safety, from firing on a range to field experiences. Other topics include state hunting laws, hunter ethics and responsibilities, outdoor survival skills, and wildlife identification.

4. New Hampshire game includes deer, turkey, bear, pheasants, waterfowl, and many other species. Each is regulated by seasons laid out by the NHFG, but some unprotected species can be hunted year round.

5. Licenses and permits, such as a federal duck stamp, can be purchased online or at any agents throughout the state.

6. Applicants selected in lottery drawings will be assigned to a specific area in the state, called a unit, of his or her choice. Occasionally, the units are reassigned if quotas have been reached.

7. Through the apprentice hunting license program, interested persons can hunt under the supervision of an experienced hunter without completion of the hunter education courses. This is one-year only opportunity.

8. Hunters should be aware that assistance is available for problems hunters experience in the field, including leashed dog trackers who help recover wounded deer, moose, and bear. These private citizens are licensed by New Hampshire Fish and Game Department.

9. The state provides listings of Wildlife Management Areas on its website. Hunters can use these to plan their trips.
