New Hampshire is one of the country's smallest states in terms of size, covering an area of 9,351 square miles (6 million acres). Of this area, 8,953 square miles (96 percent) is land, while the remaining 397 square miles is covered by water. New Hampshire, the country's fifth smallest state and its ninth least-populated, is blessed with an epic variety of land and natural assets that stretch from deserted wave-swept beaches to 48 mountain peaks above 4,000 feet. Of this landscape, some 200,000 acres of state land, 750,000 acres of national forest and thousands more acres of private land are open to hunting. A number of outfitters and private guides will take hunters out to bag moose and bear, while hunting lodges throughout the Great North Woods will inspire a lifetime love of the hunting lifestyle. Fishing is equally epic here, with the state's many lakes, rivers, ponds and coastal waters offering the chance to cast for everything from trout to pike to bluefish. Lands of America research shows that 84 percent of land in New Hampshire is privately owned.
