CONCORD — New Hampshire has issued 71 hunting permits in its annual moose hunt lottery.
The Fish and Game Department issued the permits on Friday. Winners were selected through a computerized random drawing.
Hunters who are drawn and accept a permit are not eligible to enter the lottery or apply for a bonus point for the following three years.
Last year, 105 permits were offered. New Hampshire has roughly 4,000 moose— about half the population from 10 years ago. The decline is due partly due to an increase in winter ticks.
New Hampshire's 2016 moose hunt runs from Oct. 15- 23.
