Moose permits are still an option

CONCORD — Didn't get picked in the lottery? You still have an option for hunting moose in New Hampshire this fall.

The Wildlife Heritage Foundation of New Hampshire's 2012 New Hampshire Moose Permit Auction is open. Bids must be received by Aug. 3. Official bid guidelines and documents are available by mail and for downloading from the foundation's website, nhwildlifefoundation.org.

This is the fourth annual auction run by the Wildlife Heritage Foundation of N.H. As the official nonprofit partner of the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department, the foundation is authorized to auction up to five permits to the five highest bidders.

Proceeds from the auction help support critical fish and wildlife conservation and education programs of the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department, such as K-9 Search and Rescue, Barry Conservation Camp, Owl Brook Hunter Education Center, aerial stocking of remote trout ponds, New Hampshire events for National Hunting and Fishing Day, and Wild Times for Kids.

Successful bidders in the 2012 auction will need to show proof of a previous hunting license or a certificate of completion of an approved hunter education training program. Winning auction permit holders will be able to harvest one moose of either sex in a wildlife management unit of their choice, and will be responsible for purchasing their own 2012 New Hampshire hunting license to accompany their moose permit.
