Default NH Good for Outdoorsman?

I'm beginning my search for a place to call home. I really enjoy fishing and any and all outdoor activities. NH seems ideal due to the large number of lakes, streams, ponds, and mountains. Any outdoorsy granite staters out there who can give me their impressions? Thanks.

Harry,

I live by the Conn. Lakes . The fishing is great. I enjoy fly fishing in the Conn. River and the Androsscogin . Is this a sportsmans area, why yes it is. It's bird hunting season now and deer season next month. I live for this stuff.

Chuck

Oh my. You definately belong in Northern N.H. though employment is not the greatest up there. My entire family loves the outdoors. Hunting, Fishing, Kayaking, Boating, ATV riding, Snowmobiling, Skiing, Ice fishing. My family does it all even the little ones are now getting old enough where they love to go hunting and ATV riding on the miles of trails they have and groom all year round. It's awesome up there if you love the outdoors because to be honest, there really isn't much more to do in Northern N.H. other than "play" outside all year long. .

I Loooove it out here for the outdoors. I hunted and fished Lake Erie A LOT back in Ohio and thought I would miss it dearly. Hook into your first keeper stiper or good bluefish and you'll be sold on the fishing out here....especially if you do it in a kayak. I waterfowl hunt and saltmarshes and tides add a whole new variable to the game. Seaducks will be a blast this winter. I've hiked a lot of the whites and love it up there but I'm not big into deer hunting. This area really has it all as far as the outdoors is concerned.

Up in the northern state, the people are so friendly, the snow machine and ATV trails are maintained by the fish and game basically through the cost of registrations and volunteers. You can travel to Maine, VT or Canada just on the trails. If you ever break down or go off track like I did with my snowmachine going over a bank, there will always be someone coming along more than willing to help you dig out. Such great people up there always looking out for each other. Recently they just allowed snowmachines to be used on the main streets and are now considering ATV privaledges on the main street as well. It's a way of life up there. It's a great place. Can't wait to get back there.

Much of my affection for NH is the outdoors! What half-way energetic human being that doesn’t spend their days glued to “Judge Judy” and “Saved by the Bell” re-runs wouldn’t love it here?
Let’s put it this way. For all the touristy-hype and slogans of life being the way it ought to be, Maine is very small potatoes in comparison to the Granite State. And by no means, is Maine not lovely too. I can give you a billion great impressions but will just list them off the top of my head…Pawtuckaway, Moose Brook, Pinkham Notch, Echo Lake, Kingsman Farm, the Kangamangas, Conway, Sunapee, the Shoals and Odiorne….oh and btw I am not even a fisherman. If you are, well, life is all the more golden. You can’t go wrong in this state. Other than the fact we aren’t nearly the size of Montana.

Yep, can't wait to check it out for myself. Seems like the place for me, but you never really know till you experience it firsthand. Thanks for the replies.
Hairy, um I mean Harry.
