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.
