Seen Any Wild Turkey Broods? Report


Your Sightings To NH Fish & Game____

The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department is asking for the
public's help in tracking wild turkey broods in New Hampshire
this spring and summer. It's easy to take part. If you observe
groups of turkeys with young between now through August 31,
2015, report your sightings to Fish and Game at its web-based
turkey
brood
survey
at
http://www.wildlife.state.nh.us/surveys/turkeybrood.html.

Last year (2014), summer brood survey participants reported seeing 724 broods totaling 4,646 turkeys. The average hatch date in
2014 was June 19. Biologists are especially interested in getting
more reports of turkey broods in the three northernmost New
Hampshire counties (Coos, Carroll and Grafton).

The term brood refers to a family group of young turkeys


accompanied by a hen. New Hampshire hens generally begin laying eggs sometime from mid-April to early May and complete
their clutch of about 12 eggs in early to mid-May. Incubation lasts
for 28 days, and most eggs hatch from late May to mid-June. If
incubating turkey eggs are destroyed or consumed by predators,
hens often lay a replacement clutch of eggs that hatch late June
through late July. Reports of adult male turkeys are not being
requested at this time.

Many factors can affect turkey productivity in any given year.


Young turkeys are extremely sensitive to cool temperatures and
rain, both because it can impact their health, and because these

conditions adversely impact insect populations that are a critical


source of nutrition for young turkeys. Since spring weather is
highly variable, survival of the annual hatch of wild turkeys is
also highly variable.

Turkey populations depend on a large annual influx of young


turkeys to sustain themselves over time, so the number of young
turkeys that survive to be recruited into the fall population is of
great interest to turkey managers. A large sample of turkey brood
observations collected throughout the summer can provide turkey
managers with insight into the size of the graduating class of
turkeys that will become adults.

Wildlife research and management in New Hampshire is funded


in part by Federal Aid in Wildlife and Sport Restoration, a userpay, user-benefit program supported by your purchase of fishing

One of my favorite Cole quotes


states Many a mountain stream
and rock has its legend, worthy
of the poets pen or the painters
pencil.

During the first few years of our


hiking up here, starting a decade
ago, I wouldnt have appreciated
Coles words as much. I was
more intent on getting to the top
of each peak to celebrate the
view, but also our accomplishment. You could say my appreciation for this region was tar-

never fails to live up to its promise. Unlike the world we are creating, things are come better
than advertised in the natural
world. Thats the way it was
with my Newburyport daydreams, too. No matter how perfect I saw things to be up here,
the reality exceeded the fantasy.

This morning a young bear was


busying himself with something
under a tree. He had no idea we
were within twenty feet of him
watching his rump twist and turn
while he head was down below
at the trunk. When he finally
sensed us, he turned around with
a look of shock and started to
run off. Perhaps it was because
Atticus and I were sitting, and
not chasing him, or something
else altogether, but after five
quick steps, the bear looked over
his shoulder and stopped as
well. He watched us, always
ready to run, but he never did.
And we sat taking him in, taking
in everything around him. He
would eventually move on, but
at no hurry and as he lingered,
we couldnt get enough of him.

These are the things I never did


see before. I think wed be moving so quickly forward that the
animals stayed hidden because
of all of our noise and rambunctiousness.

The other day I heard from a


woman who was new to hiking.
She wanted to know if I had any
advice for a novice. I told her to
do her own thing and not get
caught up in lists or what everyone else is doing. Do what

makes you happy. Take the gifts


the mountains are offering you
specifically and appreciate
them. Then I shared the

Our family chose Rivendell


based on our sons impression of
the school during his visit there
in the spring of 2013: he loved
the teachers and the atmosphere
of learning. Rivendell has amazing sports teams, and wonderful
drama, art and music departments. Educationally Rivendell
encourages team work and independent thinking in all of their
academic subjects. Every student is encouraged to shine.
Drivers Ed is part of the curriculum: there is no fee. .

Students can take courses at


Dartmouth and Vermont State
College, and online AP classes.
The departments of French and
Spanish have overseas exchange
programs that are inclusive of all
students wishing to participate,
and all students work to earn the
money to go. And Rivendell is an
interstate school: they comply
with all laws in Vermont and in
New Hampshire to meet the
established school standards.
They are not required to comply
with New Hampshire education
code, but because of their affiliation with Vermont, receive a
higher rate of state support.

Inspiring Words for You!

Dear Friends, Do you ever wonder if God


is there? If He hears your prayers? If He
sees you in the midst of the millions of people on
the planet? Does He even know you exist? The
answer is YES! Joshua 1:9 Have I not commanded
you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be
terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD
your God will be with you wherever you go."
Romans 8:2839 And we know that in all things
God works for the good of those who love him,
who have been called according to his purpose.
For those God foreknew he also predestined to be
conformed to the image of his Son, that he might
be the first born among many brothers and
sisters. And those he predestined, he also called;
those he called, he also justified; those he
justified, he also glorified. Read the Bible. God
bless you.

Tek Talk...

With Eli Heath

Of Paige Computer Services


Tech Tips, Talk & Advice For Your Computer

I have been receiving calls from


customers who run Windows 7,
Windows 8 and 8.1 about the
Windows Logo on the bottom
right side of the system tray.
The logo says get windows 10,
I have been asked if it is legitimate, and yes it is. On or about
July 29, 2015 Microsoft will
make available a free upgrade
to windows 10 for all computers running Windows 7,

Windows 8 and 8.1. When you


click on the logo it asks you if
you want to reserve your copy
of Windows 10. You will have
1 year from the date of release
to install your free upgrade after
the one year you will have to
pay for the upgrade, price has
not been released as of this
writing. I recommend if you do
want to install the upgrade wait

 

until 6 months from the release


date say around December or
January to install the upgrade
by then most of the bugs should
be fixed in the operating system. Here is more information
about the Windows 10 upgrade
from Windows Secrets by
Susan Bradley;

The mighty Microsoft marketing system is taking an entirely


new approach to introducing
the next Windows. Here are the
facts, not the hype

By now, most Windows users


know that Microsoft has instituted a reservation system for
downloading Windows 10,
once it formally starts shipping
this July 29. Getting Windows
users to reserve a place at the
Win10 launch table is a novel
concept as was the Technical
Preview program that's been in
place for the past few months.
Although there are some good
aspects to the reservation system, it also has problems and is
simply unnecessary.

As you probably know by now,


Windows 10 will be a free
upgrade for all qualified
Windows systems i.e., mostly personal and "genuine" Win7
and Win8.1 machines for a
full year after its July 29
release. That's not exactly a
short window for deciding
whether you want the free
upgrade. (Reportedly, if you
miss that one-year window,
you'll have to pay for the OS.
And if you haven't updated
from Win8 to 8.1, a necessary
requirement for Win10, you're
way overdue to do so.)

Contrary to some rumors, there


will not be any sort of subscription fee after you upgrade.
Microsoft will send free
updates for the life of the OS.
Possibly the one useful aspect
of the Win10 reservation system is that it runs a check of
your system to see whether it's

ready for the new OS. The "Get


Windows 10" application that
suddenly appeared on many
Windows systems earlier this
month includes a "Check my
PC" option. As long as you've
kept up on patches in Windows
Update, updating to Win10
should be relatively uncomplicated for most current PCs.
There are numerous other, more
minor changes (detailed in the
Win10 Specifications page).
For example, during the
upgrade process, your anti-malware app will in theory be
uninstalled and later reinstalled
with the latest version. (It's
unknown what AV apps this
will work for.) The "Check my
PC" function will also test
whether third-party apps are
compatible with Win10.

Upgrading to Win10 will


remove a couple of Windows
features you might rely on. For
example,
as
noted
in
Win10
FAQ,
Microsoft's
Windows Media Center will
disappear. In its place, we'll get
a DVD-playback app so we can
continue watching DVD-based
movies on our notebooks. Also
gone are Windows 7 gadgets,
ostensibly replaced by the small
universal-app tiles in Win10's
new start menu. In truth, the oss
of gadgets is a non-issue; as
noted in an MS post, these
applets are not secure and
haven't been for some time.

Microsoft calls a "Current


branch" or a "Long-term servicing branch." For the consumer
versions of Win10, users will be
able to delay update installs
only by choosing when to
reboot their systems generally for a few days at most. There
will be no option to hide
updates, as we currently can in
all versions of Win7 and Win8.
Again, the specifics are still to
come. But as I understand it,
any delay installing updates
will apply only to nonsecurity
fixes that we now see as
"optional." Moreover, security
patches may be automatically
deployed at any time, not just
on Patch Tuesday.
As someone who has watched
the evolution of Windows
patching over the years, I can
well remember where we started patches appearing any
day of the week. (We also had
to know exactly which patch
needed to be installed before
another patch.) Patch Tuesday
was initiated to bring some predictability to updating, but the
Internet and cloud services are
effectively driving us back to
continuous patching at least
for security updates.

Though it's clear we need faster


and better updating, there's also
concern that Microsoft is still
sending out problematic patches. We can only hope that
Microsoft rises to the occasion
and fixes its patch-quality problems. Even at that, if the ability
to defer updates is limited,
enterprises will be slow to
deploy Windows 10.

Possibly the most important


challenge for many Windows
users will be the coming
changes to Windows Update.
The specifics are still somewhat
vague, but on the Win10 speci- I hope that clears some of the
fications page, Microsoft states: questions you may have, I will
continue in the next article
"Windows 10 Home users will about what your computer

Update automatically avail- upgrade, any question please
