Small game hunting season starts in New Hampshire

Sunday, September 03, 2017

Small game hunting season is under way in New Hampshire.

The season started Friday for hunting gray squirrels. By mid-October, the season will have started for hunting a variety of small game, including shoeshoe hare, ruffled grouse, woodcock and pheasants.

A survey of small-game hunters last year found that ruffled grouse were the most popular small-game species in New Hampshire, accounting for nearly two-thirds of the hours spent hunting.
