Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke  stopped at the Bass Pro Shop in Hooksett Tuesday afternoon, appearing with Governor Chris Sonunu and State Fish and Game Executive Director Glenn Normandeau.

Standing in front of a giant fish tank, his podium flanked by a stuffed racoon, Zinke signed a ceremonial $1.1 billion check for fish and wildlife conservation programs. These funds are distributed to states each year. In New Hampshire, they make up about a quarter of the Fish and Game department's budget.
