New Hampshire

The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department is responsible for some 100 Wildlife Management Areas (WMAs) throughout the state, most of which allow waterfowl hunting during the appropriate season(s). Black Duck, American Coot, Pintails, Mallards, Hooded Mergansers, Redheads, Brant, Wood Duck, Scoters, Eiders, Canada Geese, Snow Geese, Scaup, and Long-tailed Ducks may be hunted during season and within specified limits.

For detailed information on WMAs, including a listing of recreational opportunities and detailed maps, as well as hunting seasons, bag limits, and licensing requirements please contact the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department or visit their web site at wildlife.state.nh.us.

In addition, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service operates four National Wildlife Refuges (NWRs) in New Hampshire -- Lake Umbagog, John Hay, Wapack, and Great Bay -- Three of which allow waterfowl hunting in season. Please contact the refuge for specifics or visit their web site through the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services' refuge system web site at www.fws.gov/refuges.
