Final numbers from all the year’s hunting seasons will be summarized in the 2012 New Hampshire Wildlife Harvest Summary, which will be issued in March.
New Hampshire’s successful hunting seasons are a reminder that hunting activities, made possible by science-based wildlife management, contribute significantly to New Hampshire’s economy. The recently released 2011 National Survey of Fishing, Hunting, and Wildlife-associated Recreation reports that 56,000 people aged 16 and older (resident and non-resident) hunt in New Hampshire. These hunters generate about $61 million in hunting-related expenditures each year.
