Hearing Planned On Lowering Age For Falconry
New Hampshire fish and game officials are proposing lowering the age for apprentice falconers.
The agency will hold a hearing on a rule to reduce the age from 16 to 14 along with proposed changes to other falconry rules on Oct. 28 in Concord.
Another proposed rule change would extend the time when birds may be taken from the wild. The current rule allows birds to be taken from Sept. 1 through Nov. 30. The proposal would extend the time to Dec. 31.
