Indeed. Just apply Hensel's lemma to a solution mod 7. It will
also have solutions mod 7^3, 7^4, ........

Note also that n^4 +2n^2-1 will be divisible by 7^2 for n = 46 +
49k
for all integer k. Note the solution at n = -3. It also has
solutions at
3 + 49k for all integer k...... (note that the function is even)
