The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department reminds hunters that July 5 is the deadline to apply in the lottery for a moose hunting permit.
Hunters are encouraged to apply on the Vermont Fish & Wildlife website (www.vtfishandwildlife.com), but printed applications also are available at Vermont license agents statewide.
Lottery applications are $10 for residents and $25 for nonresidents. Winners of the permit lottery will purchase resident hunting permits for $100 and nonresident hunting permits for $350.
The Fish and Wildlife Department is issuing 355 moose hunting permits for the regular October 19-24 moose season and 50 permits for the October 1-7 archery moose season.
Hunters took 222 moose last year in the Vermont moose hunting season. A report on 2012 hunting season results can be downloaded for information about where moose were successfully hunted in the past.
Call Vermont Fish & Wildlife at 802-241-3700 for more information.
