Sixty-nine percent of hunters with permits took a moose in this year’s nine-day hunting season.

 

Fish and Game issued a total of 108 permits and hunters took 46 males and 28 females. This year’s hunting rate is down slightly from last year.

 

A moose biologist from Fish and Game says the weather up north made this season good for moose hunting.

 

More than 9,500 people entered the moose lottery this year – with 85 percent of permits going to New Hampshire residents. People applying from out of state had a 1 in 243 chance of getting picked.
