Moose permits raise $23,500

The Foundation received seven bids from five states for the two permits up for grabs. The winning bids were $12,000 and $11,500, the release said. The Fish and Game Department allowed only two permits this year as part of a reduction in permits because of the impact of ticks on the moose population, the release said.
The moose hunt will take place Oct. 18 through 26. Winners of the auction are allowed to hunt in the Wildlife Management Unit of their choice and may take either a cow or a bull.
