Hunting In Connecticut


Connecticut With a typical New England backdrop with rolling hills and hardwood forest Connecticut has ideal habitat for the most common big game hunts. One may typically not think of Connecticut when planning a hunting trip, but there is definitely a lot of opportunity. Both Deer and Turkey hunts have a higher bag limit and seasons than most states. If you are a landowner, the state has a relatively high population compared to hunting opportunities making it ideal for maximizing your return on a hunting lease.
