Annual Banquet


We are in the planning stages of the 2008 banquet.  Any ideas for date and place would be great. 



Rabies & Microchip Clinic


Time to start looking at a date for this.  We usually have it in late April.  We’ll talk about this at the meeting on Tuesday.


Bobcat Hunting in NH


A meeting was held at Rick Graham’s a couple of weeks ago to discuss the possibility of getting bobcat hunting and trapping back in NH.  There seems to be an increase in the # of cats getting caught in traps as well as road kills.


A few houndsmen got together at the request of Dan Dockham.  There were about 8 hunters there as well as the Carroll County Fish and Game Commissioner and Pat Tate, furbearer biologist out of NH F&G Region 3 in Durham.


This is was just a preliminary meeting to talk about what would need to be done to start the process of getting hunting and trapping re-instated.  According to Pat, there will need to be a lot of scientific research done to find out what the population in NH is. 


I’ll keep you posted on the topic as we find out more of what we as hunters, trappers and houndsmen need to do and help with.
