This is your last chance to enter Vermont’s 2012 moose hunting permit lottery. The deadline is July 5, and the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department is urging hunters who plan on entering to do so now online.
The application is quick and easy to fill out on the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department’s website (www.vtfishandwildlife.com). A link on the home page takes you to information and the lottery application.
“It’s a really quick process that ensures your entry is immediately entered into the lottery,”said Director of Wildlife Mark Scott. “Plus, it saves postage. Printed moose applications are available at license agents, but we really encourage you to use the online application. It is more efficient for you and for us.”
Lottery applications are $10 for residents and $25 for nonresidents. Winners of the permit lottery must purchase resident hunting permits for $100 and nonresident hunting permits for $350.
The Fish and Wildlife Department is issuing 385 moose hunting permits by lottery for the regular October 20-25 moose season and 50 permits for an archery moose season October 1-7.
