Bears, Youth Deer Hunt Featured in Latest Issue of N.H. Wildlife JournalCONCORD, N.H. — Few New Hampshire experiences are quite as memorable as coming face to face with a black bear.  New Hampshire Wildlife Journal magazine’s September-October 2008 issue gets up close and personal with black bears in “The Bear Necessities,” an article written by forest educator and journalist Dave Anderson.

Feature articles in this issue of the Journal, New Hampshire’s only magazine dedicated to fish and wildlife conservation and recreation, include Anderson’s entertaining and informative look at fall activity in bear country, plus “Youth Deer Adventures,” which profiles three young hunters who took part in the New Hampshire youth deer weekend hunt last October.  Readers will discover that there’s much more to a deer hunt than bringing home a whitetail.  In fact, it’s hard to say who is more excited, the kids or the dads, in this story that’s as much about family and tradition as scouting and shooting.    

Think wildlife just needs vast, undisturbed forest to thrive?  You’ll think again after reading Ned Therrien’s story about creating woodland openings to encourage a diversity of wildlife.  A resource list of organizations that provide training, practical tips and even financial assistance for improving wildlife habitat on your land tells how to get started.

As always, the magazine features beautiful professional photography that brings Granite State wildlife, from moose to red-tailed hawks, into focus for readers.

Regular columns bring you Conservation News, Warden’s Watch, Kids Corner and more:

  • This issue’s Wild Ways explores the mystery of why fall leaves change color.
  • In Naturalist’s Notebook, you’ll learn that the brilliant colors of the Eastern brook trout are more intense in the fall, when this fish spawns.
  • Conservation News looks at the comeback of the New Hampshire State Butterfly, the Karner blue, on the Concord Pine Barrens, and more.
