Deer Hunting

Northernmost New Hampshire's rugged mountainous terrain provides the ideal habitat for northern white-tail deer. Pittsburg's 200,000 acres consist of dense spruce forests, areas of clear cut, ample mountain streams, high mountain bogs, and the fertile Connecticut River valley. Numerous logging roads make the forest lands accessible. Most all lands are open to the public for hunting thanks primarily to the Lyme Timber Company. Pittsburg is known for its 200 lb+ bucks. The Indian Stream valley is a favorite of many deer hunters. Many nice bucks have also come from the Magalloway Mountain area. Snow comes early to NH's northwoods which makes tracking deer much easier. Our area is apt to get snow off and on from mid-October. Good areas to scout would include stream valleys, hardwood ridges and beech stands.

Visit the NH Fish and Game for specific dates and hunting rules for Whitetail Deer.
