NH Audubon is opposed to the proposed Bobcat hunt for New Hampshire. On January 29th, we posted a statement to the Fish and Game commission on our position. The decision to hunt bobcat must be overturned. The Joint Legislative Committee on Administrative Rules has the authority to reverse this decision because it was contrary to public intent.

If you share this position, here is what you can do:

  1. Send e-mails to Cheryl Walsh, administrative assistant for the Joint Legislative Committee on Administrative Rules (JLCAR) at She will distribute them to committee members;
  2. Attend the JLCAR Hearing at Representatives Hall at the Statehouse in Concord on April 1 at 9am;
  3. Write letters to your local newspapers;
  4. Get your town’s conservation commission to join 31 other commissions and voice your opposition. See the Stoddard Conservation Commission Facebook page for links to their letter and other information;
  5. If your commission voices opposition, get the Board of Selectmen to write a letter of support.

Let’s stand together!
