3/2/22 – NH OGT adopts a new logo
Conservation Officers received information on the morning of September 10 through Operation Game Thief regarding the illegal shooting of a black bear in southern Grafton County. Through investigation, the shooter was identified and it was learned that the bear was shot several days earlier during night hours. Charges are pending, and a hearty thanks goes out to concerned citizens who witness wildlife crimes and use the Operation Game Thief system.
Conservation Officer Rob McDermott received an OGT tip from a concerned angler that a person had been fishing Archery Pond in Allenstown early mornings and taking more than the two fish limit. On September 8th, CO McDermott arrived at the pond around sunrise and the described suspect was already fishing. The CO took a position in the woods and conducted surveillance on the suspect. Shortly after the CO’s arrival, the suspect began to pick up to leave. CO McDermott approached the suspect and while checking his fishing license the CO found that the suspect had 12 Brook Trout over the limit. Archery Pond is fly fishing only and is a handicapped accessible pond.
