CONCORD, N.H. — The deadline for entering the 2008 New Hampshire moose hunt lottery comes up at the end of this month, so it’s time to get your application in for a chance at the adventure of a lifetime.  Applications are $15 for residents and $25 for non-residents.  If you have not yet applied, you can enter the lottery online at the Fish and Game website www.HuntNH.com; you can also print out a mail-in application or pick one up from any Fish and Game license agent. 

Lottery applications for 2008 must be postmarked or submitted online by midnight Eastern Time, May 30, or delivered to N.H. Fish and Game headquarters in Concord before 4 p.m. that day.  Applicants are encouraged to apply online, since there is less chance of submitting an incomplete application. 

New Hampshire’s moose hunt runs from October 18 to 26, 2008.  More than 16,700 applicants entered the lottery for the chance to win a permit for the 2007 moose season.  Permit holders can choose another hunter of any age to accompany them on the hunt, but only one moose may be taken per permit.  Each applicant can enter the moose hunt lottery once each year.  A bonus point system improves the chances for unsuccessful applicants who apply each consecutive year.  Don’t miss a year, or you’ll lose your points!  Hunters who get permits are not eligible to enter the lottery for the following three years.  Duplicate or ineligible applications are non-refundable.
