MONTPELIER, Vt. - The Vermont Department of Fish & Wildlife is extending the application for moose hunting permits. 

A press release says the deadline has been extended from June 10 to June 17. Hunters who plan on entering can do so online. Click on Hunting and Trapping, then Lottery Applications and Winners, and then Online Moose Permit Application.  

“Giving folks an additional week to apply makes sense because many may be unaware the deadline is a month earlier this year,” said Fish & Wildlife Commissioner Louis Porter.  “The application process also was advanced so those who do receive permits have time to do their pre-hunt planning and scouting, as well as to ensure that long-time applicants are able to preserve their bonus points from previous years.”

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.
