Hunters in south/central New Hampshire should note that there will not be a deer and turkey registration station at the Milford Fish Hatchery this year. Successful deer and turkey hunters are required to register their kill within 24 hours at an authorized registration or “check” station, where information on the kill is collected.
The Milford Hatchery is no longer available this year because of staffing limitations. A new registration station, Lee’s Gun Shop II in Amherst, opened this year in response to the closure of the hatchery. Other deer and turkey registration stations in Hillsborough County include Morse Sporting Goods in Hillsboro, Wildlife Taxidermy & Sport in Manchester, J-Don’s Variety in Nashua, Hoppy’s Country Store in New Ipswich, and Dave’s Taxidermy in Weare.
