Moose permit auction receiving bids

The Associated Press

CONCORD — Now that New Hampshire's moose hunting lottery is over, the Wildlife Heritage Foundation of New Hampshire is launching its moose permit auction, with sealed bids due by Aug. 6.

For the second year in a row, the foundation is authorized to auction only two permits, due to the impact of ticks on the moose population and the Fish and Game Department's reduction in the number of moose hunt permits.

The two highest bidders will receive hunting and moose hunting licenses. In case of a tying bid, the earliest postmarked, signed bid will prevail.

Successful bidders will be able to harvest one moose of either sex in a Wildlife Management Unit of their choice.

Proceeds from the auction support the programs of the Fish and Game Department.

More information about the auction is available on the N.H. Fish and Game website.
