    The NH Bear Hunters Association was formed in 1979 by a small group of bear houndsmen in the state. Two of these founding members, Bruce Cairns and Dan Dockham are still active members today and both are still avid houndsmen. The NH Bear Hunters Association is didicated to preserving the heritage of hunting with hounds in the state of New Hampshire.
     We work closely with our local Fish and Game Dept. for nuisance bear complaints, donating funds to the bear abatement fund, and occasionally using hounds in certain situations. We also donate to Ben Kilham in raising our states orphan bear cubs.

Three years ago we started an annual event. Our Big Game Field Trials.  This year it will be held on May 27, 2017 in Errol, New Hampshire. It is a huge attraction for houndsmen from all over the United States and Canada. For more information about this event please email or call Kelly Irwin listed on the bottom of this web page.
