Time to Celebrate! 'North Woods Law' Returns to NH and You're Invited to the Party
A new season of "North Woods Law" starring New Hampshire Fish & Game officers starts just after the New Year and the department is throwing a party to celebrate.
In an interview on "Good Morning NH" on 107.7 WTPL, Mark Beauchesne with NH Fish & Game told hosts Peter St. James and Pat Kelly that "North Woods Law" decided to do another season because of the opportunities the Granite State offers.
"The folks at Animal Planet like what's here. They have this brand. It's called "North Woods Law," and we fit that brand very well," Beauchesne said. He also said the location of New Hampshire offers plenty of advertising opportunities in major markets.
The relationship is a win-win for the show and the state.
"It showcases our state in a way that you and I see it and others see it," Beauchesne said. "It's beautifully shot and it gives an opportunity for the folks even here in-state to understand the depth of what their Fish & Game Department does.
"It's an opportunity to put New Hampshire on the map as we always are through many different things between first-in-the-nation and many other things. But this is definitely a unique one to show the outside of New Hampshire beyond politics and Nascar race and things like that."
Beauchesne said the party will be a great way to kick off the upcoming season, which is the third that takes place in New Hampshire. Attendees will have chances to speak one-on-one with the officers on the show and get signature cards. They will show a 14-20 minute video featuring highlights from the upcoming season.
As for bloopers and outtakes, they likely won't make the cut.
"They go to step out of the truck and they just start tumbling? I think that will probably come out long after the show ends," Beauchesne said. "They want to keep the show professional."
The new season starts Jan. 7 at 9 p.m. The party will take place Jan. 5 from 7-9 p.m. at the New England's Tap House Grille in Hooksett. Beauchesne said to keep an eye on the NH Fish and Game Law Enforcement Division and Operation Game Thief and NH Fish and Game Facebook pages for more information and to register to attend the event.
