SNOWMOBILE WEEKEND ENDS
New Hampshire can no longer promote an annual weekend for snowmobilers registered in Maine and Vermont to ride its trails for free. For seven years during the last weekend of January, snowmobilers registered in New Hampshire, Maine, and Vermont have been allowed on trails in all three states without paying additional registration. Maine and Vermont changed their regulations to allow a free weekend for registered snowmobilers from any state, with the ability to change the date. SENT: 369 words, photos. By Kathy McCormack.
HELICOPTER MOOSE COLLARING: The Vermont Department of Fish and Wildlife says a helicopter will be used to help tag 30 moose as part of a three-year study of the state’s moose herd.
