State moose hunt lottery is now open

CONCORD — New Hampshire’s 2014 moose hunt lottery is now open. Entering the lottery costs $15 for New Hampshire residents, $25 for nonresidents. The odds of being selected in last year’s lottery were 1 in 35 for New Hampshire residents and 1 in 121 for nonresidents.

To enter, visit huntnh.com/Hunting/Hunt_species/hunt_moose.htm; enter online or print out a mail-in application, or buy one in person from any Fish and Game license agent or at Fish and Game headquarters in Concord.

Moose hunt lottery applications for 2014 must be postmarked or submitted online by midnight May 30. Winners will be selected through a computerized random drawing on June 20 in Concord.

Each applicant can enter the moose hunt lottery once a year. A bonus point system improves the chances for unsuccessful applicants who apply each consecutive year.

Last year, more than 13,000 people entered the lottery for the chance to win one of 275 permits. Hunters from 15 different states won permits.

While people travel from all over the country to take part in the New Hampshire moose hunt, the majority of permits (about 85 percent) go to New Hampshire residents. The number of permits available to nonresidents is capped, based on the prior year’s sales of nonresident hunting licenses.

Because of the continued decline in moose numbers in some areas, permit reductions are likely in parts of the state, according to Wildlife Programs Supervisor Kent Gustafson.

New Hampshire’s nine-day moose hunt this year runs Oct. 18-26.
