Fish and Game advice: Thank a landowner
This holiday season, the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department has some advice for hunters, fishermen, and wildlife watchers: Thank a landowner who shares their property with you.
The department said more than 70 percent of land in New Hampshire is privately owned. Landowners could be a farmer allowing people to walk through their fields to access a fishing spot; someone who gives hunter permission to hunt in their woodlot; or a neighbor who lets someone snowmobile through their property.
The department suggests a few ways to say thanks include visiting the landowner at the end of the season to express appreciation; send a note, card or gift basket; and help protect their property by documenting and reporting suspicious activities.
