The average winning bid was consistent with last year’s winners. The auction raised a $40,900 for the foundation, with the five winning bids ranging from $7,250 to $8,750.
The annual auction is a primary fundraiser for the Wildlife Heritage Foundation of New Hampshire, and a real boost to its ability to fund Fish and Game programs. Each year, Fish and Game provides five moose hunting permits to the Wildlife Heritage Foundation.
The moose hunting season is Oct. 20-28. Winners of the moose permit auction are allowed to hunt in the Wildlife Management Unit of their choice, and may take either a cow or a bull.
