Action: What Landowners in New Hampshire Can Do to Help Wildlife.
September 1st marks the start of a full-on assault on the wild animals in New Hampshire. As fall draws closer so does many hunting seasons in the state. It starts with bear hunting and will be followed by deer and countless other animals. Posting your land against hunting will save and protect many wild animals from hunting and from some of the cruelest of all hunting practices such as hounding and bow hunting.
- Put up Posted, No Hunting signs, no matter how small the size of the acreage. Staple signs every 300 feet and at gates and entrances.
- Under state law (RSA 635:4), the legal manner of posting calls for posting durable signs with any words describing the physical activity prohibited, such as “No Hunting or Trespassing,” in letters at least 2 inches high, and with the owner’s name and address. The signs may be no further than 100 yards apart on all sides of the property and shall also be posted at gates, bars and all commonly used entrances.
- Be sure to put your name and address on the sign using a permanent black marker.
- Free signs are available by contacting: firstname.lastname@example.org
