N.H.’s Fish and Game Department not only serves hunters and anglers but also oversees conservation of endangered species; land and habitat management; search and rescue; law enforcement, and more. We talk with the new director, Scott Mason, an outdoorsman and dairy farmer from Strafford, who took on the challenging position almost a year ago. We discuss his vision for the agency as well as how impacts of climate change are being seen in the agency's work in wildlife and habitat management.
