After an absence of nearly half a century, bald eagles are breeding once again – in a big way –on the Connecticut River in New Hampshire and Vermont. Read all about the remarkable recovery of these regal predators in the current issue (November-December 2012) of New Hampshire Wildlife Journal, the state’s only magazine dedicated to fish and wildlife conservation and recreation.
Also in this issue is the surprising story of a vegan and anti-hunter who, while seeking local organic food sources, becomes a dedicated hunter. Beyond an appreciation for the healthy food, he soon gains an appreciation for being connected to the land and an activity that connects with humanity’s ancestral roots. Hunting “is about going out your back door and experiencing a deep meaningful connection to the wildness around you,” says Tovar Cerulli, author of the article and the recent book, “The Mindful Carnivore.”
If you’re heading out for a winter stroll on New Hampshire’s blustery beach in the next few months, you’ll be glad you read “Sea Duckin’.” This story about our hardy coastal waterfowl, pursued by hunters and waterfowl watchers alike, will help you identify surf scoters, king eiders and long-tailed ducks bobbing in the waves.
The November-December issue also profiles another sea duck, the bufflehead, which is the smallest diving duck in North America. You’ll learn about deer “instant messaging” in Wild Ways, experience a winter walk through Bear Brook State Park, and enjoy the adventures of Fish and Game Conservation Officers in Warden’s Watch.
