The new television series “North Woods Law: New Hampshire” will premiere on Animal Planet at 9 p.m. on Sunday, March 5.
The new series showcases the work of the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department’s Law Enforcement and Biological staff.
The New Hampshire angle is new for “North Woods Law,” which has spent the last four years and seven seasons profiling the Maine Warden Service.
The show’s film crews have been working in New Hampshire for nearly a year. The show will cover everything from the White Mountains to the Granite State’s Atlantic shore.
Conservation officers are tasked with enforcing all laws, rules and regulations pertaining to the state’s fish, wildlife, off-road 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.
“We are pleased at the potential the New Hampshire series has for raising public awareness of the complexities of wildlife enforcement and management,” and said Colonel Kevin Jordan, Chief of NH Fish and Game Law Enforcement. “Audiences will be able to see firsthand how Fish and Game staff work together every day to protect these resources for all of us.”
