CONCORD - Fish and Game Executive Director Glenn Normandeau was having some fun talking about a new reality TV program that will star New Hampshire conservation officers.
"I am sure the governor will cringe if she sees me on TV because you never can tell what might miss the cutting room floor," he teased.
"I certainly understand why a television network, an entertainment channel would want to film in New Hampshire. We’re a beautiful state, we have great outdoor recreation, we have great hunting and fishing,’’ said Gov. Maggie Hassan.
Maine’s game wardens have been the feature of the North Woods Law, a successful show on Animal Planet wrapping up soon.
"I did have concerns about reality TV and about making sure as partners in the project we would have some say in the final product," Hassan admitted.
The contract allows the state two chances to edit out content they don’t like.
"If we see any issues in the content. It can be as simple as an officer not having his seat belt on," says Fish and Game Department Maj. John Wimsatt.
State officials are hoping this improves recruitment of Fish and Game officers since right now only one of 70 applicants are fit for the job.
"Can’t do the physical, can’t do this, can’t do that. It’s unbelievable how difficult it is to get people qualified,’’ Normandeau explains.
