CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — The annual New Hampshire moose lottery is open for business.
Hunting moose in New Hampshire begins with the hunt for a moose permit. More than 13,400 hunters applied last year, with 275 getting permits after being randomly chosen by computer in June.
An application costs $15 for in-state residents and $25 for non-residents.
Applications must be postmarked or received online by May 31. Winners will be chosen June 21.
Those who win a permit must pay to obtain a moose hunting license, at a cost of $150 for state residents and $500 for non-residents.
Hunters from 18 different states won permits last year.
Moose season this year runs from Oct. 19-27.
