In the wake of widespread public outcry, New Hampshire Fish and Game (NHFG) has withdrawn their controversial proposal to reinstitute a bobcat hunting and trapping season in the Granite State. The Harris Center applauds this decision, and thanks the NHFG Commissioners, NHFG staff, and all those who participated in the process by attending hearings and submitting comments in support of New Hampshire’s bobcats.

To thank NHFG for their wise decision to withdraw the bobcat season proposal, email the NHFG Commission, care of Executive Director Glenn Normandeau.
