The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department says sales will begin soon for special permits allowing hunters to take additional antlerless deer in the southeastern part of the state this fall.
Up to 750 hunters will be allowed to purchase Special Antlerless Deer Permits for Unit L this year. These permits will all come with one deer tag at a cost of $26. Only one Unit L permit can be issued per sportsperson. Unit L permits will be sold online only at www.nhfishandgame.com.
Sales start Tuesday at 6 p.m. The popular permits are issued on a first-come, first-served basis. Applicants must hold a current New Hampshire hunting or archery license.
The special permits, made available since 2014, reflect a long-term objective to reduce deer numbers in southeastern New Hampshire to sustain regional herd health and minimize deer-human conflicts.
