Moose permits raise $23,500
CONCORD — The Wildlife Heritage Foundation raised $23,500 in its annual moose hunting permit auction, according to a release from the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department.
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.
“With only two permits to auction this year, receiving bids from five states continues to speak to how hunters view the quality of the hunting experience here in New Hampshire,” Steve White, chairman of the foundation, said in the release.
The money will go to grants to support Fish and Game programs, 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.
