Public Hearing on Moose Hunt Point System

CONCORD, N.H. -- The point system in the New Hampshire moose hunt lottery will be the topic of a public hearing on October 15 at 7 p.m. at the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department on Hazen Drive in Concord. The proposed rules are necessary to implement a law passed this year that establishes a new system starting in 2004 under which hunters who enter the moose lottery and are not selected will earn a point that entitles them to an additional chance in the next year's lottery.

While most of the criteria for the new point system were set out in the law and cannot be changed through administrative rules, the proposal would change the identifying information applicants must provide and clarify when an applicant would lose points. Under the proposal, hunters must continue to apply in the lottery annually to prevent losing accumulated points, and hunters who receive a permit will lose all accumulated points and not be eligible for a permit for the following three years.

Written comments may be submitted by October 27, 2003, to:; or Executive Director, N.H. Fish and Game Department, 11 Hazen Drive, Concord, NH 03301; or fax (603) 271-1438.

This year, more than 14,000 applicants entered the lottery for the chance to win one of 485 permits issued for the moose season. Click here for more information on moose hunting in New Hampshire and the New Hampshire moose hunt lottery.
