New Hampshire pheasant hunting season opens Oct. 1
CONCORD — The state’s three-month pheasant hunting season opens Oct. 1 and the state’s stocking sites plan to release more than 12,000 birds statewide, the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department said in a release.
Pheasant hunters have a daily bag limit of two birds, and a season limit of 10 birds, the release said.
“Please keep safety foremost in mind: wear hunter orange, control your firearm muzzle and know where your hunting partners are at all times. Shoot only within your zone of fire, and keep your hunting dog under control,” Fish and Game Pheasant Project Leader Karen Bordeau said in a statement.
The release said hunters should refrain from training dogs at release sites during the three days prior to Oct. 1. Dog training flushes pheasants from release sites, often onto posted property or other areas not suitable for hunting, the release said.
Pheasant hunters must purchase a $26 pheasant license, in addition to the regular New Hampshire hunting license or non-resident small game license. Licenses can be purchased at huntnh.com or from any Fish and Game license agent.
Pheasant season ends Dec. 31.
