The Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife is reminding all hunters that the deadline to apply for the 2013 Maine Moose Permit Lottery is less than three weeks away.
Prospective moose hunters have until 11:59 p.m. on May 14 to apply for the permit lottery online. The online application can be found at www.mefishwildlife.com.
This year, 4,110 permits will be awarded, up from 3,725 permits last year.
Permit winners and their subpermittees will be able to hunt in one of the department’s 25 wildlife management districts (WMDs) which cover more than 21,000 square miles.
This year’s moose permit lottery drawing will be held on June 15 in Greenville, as part of the three-day Moose Lottery Festival.
