2006 fishing and hunting licenses are now available; get yours today and be ready to enjoy a full year of outdoor adventure in the Granite State, from winter ice-fishing to April trout fishing to tracking whitetail deer next fall. Good from January 1 through December 31, 2006, licenses can be purchased online (click here for Fish and Game's online licensing site) or from license agents statewide.

Your license is your ticket to the great outdoors -- and always a great deal. For New Hampshire residents, a 2006 annual fishing license costs $35; basic hunting licenses are $24.50; and combination (hunting and fishing) licenses are $48.50. Nonresidents can buy annual fishing licenses for $53; hunting licenses for $105.50; and combination hunting/fishing licenses for $143.50. Coming to New Hampshire for a shorter visit? One-, three- or seven-day fishing licenses are an option for nonresidents. New in 2006, residents can buy a one-day fishing license for just $10.

Gift certificates for 2006 licenses make a great gift for any hunter or angler on your list. Certificates are available at Fish and Game headquarters on Hazen Drive in Concord, or click here for a print-and-mail order form.

Fishing and hunting licenses are family friendly. Be sure to take the kids along, because children under the age of 16 can fish in New Hampshire without a license. Youths under age 16 also can hunt without a license in the company of a licensed hunter over the age of 18. New Hampshire resident seniors age 68 and older can get a free license to fish and hunt in New Hampshire. Make getting outside a family affair!

Fishing and hunting license fees directly support wildlife and fisheries management and education.
