Vermont Fish & Wildlife: Deadline for the 2017 Moose Hunting Permit Lottery

MONTPELIER, Vt. - Wildlife officials say the deadline to apply for a moose permit in Vermont is approaching soon.

Officials at Vermont Fish & Wildlife say the lottery deadline is set for Monday, July 3.

Officials say 63 regular moose season permits and 17 archery permits will be issued for the October moose hunt.

According to a media release, the number of permits was reduced for the 2017 season and is limited to only bulls this year.

“We recommended a reduction in permit numbers and permits only for bulls this year based on biological data, and our population estimates indicating moose densities remain below management goals in many areas,” said wildlife biologist Cedric Alexander, Vermont’s moose project leader.

“The intent of the proposal to allow controlled population growth,” added Alexander.

For those interested in applying the cost to apply is $10 for residents and $25 for nonresidents, if you are chosen to receive a permit the cost for a resident hunting permits for $100 and nonresident hunting permits for $350.

Officials say hunters that aren’t chosen will have the option to bid in an auction for 5 permits at a later date. Hunters who have held a permit in the last five years are not eligible to apply.
