NH Fish and Game to hold hearings on moose, turkey hunting


KEENE (AP) — New Hampshire Fish and Game officials will hold two hearings this week on proposed rule changes for the 2016-2017 hunting seasons.

Some of the most dramatic rule changes would include further paring back the number of moose hunt permits issues in 2016 from 105 to 71.

Another proposal would lengthen the fall turkey hunting season from five to seven days by adding a weekend at the end of the season.

The first of the hearings takes place tonight, beginning at 6:30 p.m., at Keene High School. The second hearing takes place Tuesday at the Fish and Game Region 1 Office in Lancaster, also beginning at 6:30 p.m.

The Wildlife Division will present the final rules package to the Fish and Game Commission at its April 20 meeting.
