Other than humans, I can not imagine what animal you would need protection from.

I live in the sticks in Maine...same fauna as N.H.

I carry a .45. They SAY (oh, they swear up and down) that there's no mountain lions... but I've seen cat paw tracks the size of my hand, in the snow.

We also have black bears in my yard. I never go in the woods without my .45. Never had to use it, and you'll 99.999999% be fine, but why chance it.

I carry a 12 ga during the spring/summer, when the bears are out getting all the fruit they can.

As for the laws, I dunno. I thought NH was pretty cool with guns...

Best look online at state laws.

Shotgun might be the easiest to transport legally and a good predator gun but you best check the laws in whatever states you will be in.

My only worry about a shotgun, is being accused of illegal hunting...

...And that's why, when I go illegal hunting, I carry paper targets, ear plugs, and safety glasses in my back pack.


I kid!!! I kid!!!!!

before taking the word of the State Police I would check in at the NRA - http://www.nraila.org/

"well, Deputy Fife said it was ok" is not a legal defense

Well if you can't bring a gun, just do the pierce Morgan plan... Being someone slower than you.
