New Hampshire offers excellent opportunity for grouse and woodcock hunters, especially in the North Country. The NH Small Game Summary Report PDF Document showed that 65% of the hunting hours dedicated to small game went to hunting ruffed grouse, with woodcock also a popular hunt.


New Hampshire's grouse and woodcock populations are abundant and healthy.
