CONCORD, NH — The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department’s spring moose survey will be underway soon. The public is being asked to submit photos of moose taken in New Hampshire from May 1 through May 15, 2018.
Images submitted should show one whole side of the moose. They should not be taken from in front of or behind the animal. Images must be taken ONLY during the May 1 through May 15 survey time period. The dates are extremely important because taking photos earlier or later can skew the data and provide misleading results. Photos may be from regular cameras, smartphones, or trail cameras.
Submit your photographs and learn more about the survey at www.wildnh.com/surveys/moose.html.
Fish and Game wildlife staff monitor moose around the state during the spring to help evaluate tick loads. These results are tabulated in the Moose Spring Hair Loss Survey. In an effort to expand the amount of information gathered in the survey, this year the Department is once again including photos taken by the general public.
