New Hampshire Hiking Guides
New Hampshire provides some of the most challenging hikes around. The classic adventure is hiking the Presidential Range. This is 25.5 miles of rugged, strenuous adventure that can be completed in one day, if you are up to the challenge. Most people prefer to take 3-4 days to complete the task and stop off at the various huts along the way to lighten the load. Along this hike you will have the chance to visit the many summits, eight of them being over 4,000 feet.
Even if you choose to bypass these climbs you will still hike above the tree line, capturing glacial cirques and witnessing the expansive views from horizon to horizon. The season for this hike runs from spring through to fall, but of course this depends on the weather. There are a variety of New Hampshire hiking guides that can lead you through the White Mountains on a challenging hike that you will never forget.
New Hampshire Fishing Guides
Offshore fishing is massive in the state and so are the catches. There have been some gigantic fish caught in the Atlantic ocean over the last few years and the New Hampshire fishing guides will take you straight to where the action is.
The Gulf of Maine is a great spot to catch some Bluefin Tuna. Back in 1997, an 844 lbs Bluefin was caught there and who knows how many more are lurking in the waters. In the Isle of Shoals, a 98 lbs Atlantic Cod was reeled in back in '69. Offshore fishing is always challenging in skill and endurance. Going out there with an outfitter will put your ability to the test. Going out there without one can put you in danger.
New Hampshire Hunting Guides
Deer is the most popular game and there are more than 80,000 in the state. As with all states, each weapon has its own season. Archery season starts September 15th; muzzleloader season October 29th and firearm season begins eleven days after. A New Hampshire guide will know where the deer will be and how to track them, but here are some basic hunting tips.
The most common sign that a deer has been in the area is their tracks. In the snow or on soft ground, it is easier to gauge the track's freshness and successfully run into a whitetail. Another useful tip is to look for scrapes. This is when a buck scuffs at the dirt and grass, leaving an oval shape in the earth. The buck will also urinate in to the scrape and chew on the branches overhead. Both the scent and a chewed branch are a positive sign that a buck is nearby.
