Plan for 2014 and support wildlife with calendar

CONCORD — The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department has launched its 2014 New Hampshire Fish & Wildlife Calendar, showcasing professional wildlife photography, wildlife watching tips and more.

The N.H. Fish & Wildlife Calendar is a New Hampshire-made product that inspires everyone to get connected to the great outdoors. Each month features fascinating professional photographs of native wildlife.

Outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy another unique feature — handy New Hampshire season dates for hunting, fishing and snowmobiling. This year’s calendar also highlights year-round opportunities for adults and kids to “learn wild” in New Hampshire.

Calendars are available for $9.95 at wildnh.com/Shop/calendar.html (shipping is free for one to five calendars), or purchase in person at the N.H. Fish and Game Department, 11 Hazen Drive in Concord, Monday through Friday from 8:15 a.m. to 4:15 p.m.

Hand-written licenses will disappear soon

CONCORD — The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department is going electronic. Beginning with the 2014 license year, regular hunting and fishing licenses will be computer-generated and printed by the agent on regular paper, just as licenses purchased online or at Wal-Mart are done now.

More than half of hunting and fishing licenses sold in N.H. (53 percent) are currently purchased online or at stores that use an automated system.

When 2014 hunting and fishing licenses become available in mid-December, all Fish and Game license agents will be issuing hunting and fishing licenses via the automated system. Hand-written licenses will no longer be available after the 2013 license year ends.

One change under the new system is that, starting with the 2014 licenses, a $2 transaction fee will be charged per license form.
