Return of the Lynx, Hi-tech Ice Fishing, Featured in NH Wildlife Journal

CONCORD, N.H. - Exciting trail-cam images of four lynx  kittens in Pittsburg, N.H., last year raised the intriguing possibility that  Canada lynx, after being absent from New Hampshire for more than 50 years, may  be poised to once again be part of the North Country landscape. Read about this  elusive predator and what biologists are doing to document its presence, in the  current issue (January/February 2013) of New Hampshire Wildlife Journal, the  state's only magazine dedicated to fish and wildlife conservation and outdoor  recreation.

Also in this issue, check out the new hi-tech tools of  the modern ice-fishing revolution.  As  they say, it's not your grandfather's ice fishing gear! While traditional  tip-ups and bobhouses still have a devoted following, new electronics and  portable shelters are changing the ice fishing experience.

Another feature highlights how citizens in Bath, N.H.,  took action for wildlife by creating their own Natural Resources Inventory.  After documenting the town's wetlands, soil, wildlife habitat - even  discovering healthy wild brook trout in twelve high-elevation streams -  townspeople have a renewed appreciation for what makes a healthy environment  and how the community can work together to protect it.

The January/February issue also profiles the snowshoe  hare, one of New Hampshire's wildlife species best adapted for winter. Readers  can take an armchair cruise along snowmobile trails in Grafton County, learn  about ice safety, and enjoy the adventures of Fish and Game Conservation  Officers in Warden's Watch.
