Combo New Hampshire Turkey License

As of 2008, New Hampshire will require purchase of a new turkey license that covers both spring and fall hunts (archery and firearms options there). 

Previously, a spring and fall turkey tag cost hunters $6--typically bowhunters used the latter option on the big birds during the annual Sept. 15-Dec. 15 season. Now, state residents will pay $16, and nonresidents $31. It's not quite a forced buy, but the license will allow you to hunt spring birds, and fall flocks in either archery-only or gun zones during specific autumn seasons. A big-game or archery license is also required. That's still cheap when compared to costs in other states around the country. 

Recent estimates indicate 36,000 birds roam the Granite State.
