CONCORD — If you are a fan of "North Woods Law New Hampshire" on Animal Planet, you won’t want to miss the latest issue of the New Hampshire Wildlife Journal magazine (November/December 2020), which introduces readers to the film crew that brings the popular reality television series to life.

Ride along with author Tim Acerno as he spends a day with the TV team and learns about how much work goes into each episode’s production.

"North Woods Law: New Hampshire," according to Fish and Game website, “features the conservation officers of the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department who work tirelessly to preserve and protect the natural resources of the Granite State. New Hampshire's wild and rugged landscape makes the state a premiere destination for outdoorsmen and women and makes the work of Conservation Officers diverse and demanding. They are tasked with enforcing all laws, rules and regulations pertaining to the state's fish, wildlife, recreational vehicles and marine resources and they prosecute all of their own cases involving offenders of wildlife law.

“Whether they're assisting biologists in managing the state's wildlife, patrolling backcountry roads during hunting season or conducting search and rescue operations on windswept mountains and roaring rivers, every day presents a new challenge in the Live Free or Die state.”

You will also learn about the annual summer endeavor of banding geese. In “Goose Banding 101,” Nicola Whitley recounts her experiences wrangling geese to help biologists monitor the Canada goose population in the Atlantic Flyway, which includes the Granite State.

Also in this issue, the Journal’s final installment exploring the articles from 50 years back concludes with “All in the Family,” an ode to “musk carriers” which are mammals such as minks, otters, martens, and fishers which are referred to as furbearers in a modern biological lexicon.
