Annual moose hunt about to start in New Hampshire
CONCORD (AP) — New Hampshire's nine-day moose hunting season is about to start.
A total of 71 permit holders were drawn in this year's lottery from a pool of more than 8,000 applicants for the hunt Oct. 15 to 23. Two other hunters were the highest bidders in an annual auction that benefits the Wildlife Heritage Foundation of New Hampshire. One permit was given to a youth with a serious medical condition through the Hunt of a Lifetime program.
Last fall, hunters had a statewide success rate of 69 percent.
