The deadline for entering New Hampshire's moose hunt lottery is May 27.

It costs $15 for residents and $25 for non-residents to enter the lottery. A total of 71 permits are proposed to be issued this year.

The state's moose hunt will run from Oct. 15-23.

Last year, the statewide hunter success rate was 69 percent.

Each applicant can enter once a year. A bonus point system improves the chances for unsuccessful applicants who apply each consecutive year.

Hunters who are drawn and accept a permit are not eligible to enter the lottery or apply for a bonus point for the following three years.
