    Moose Hunting at Low Point for New Hampshire

    New Hampshire is accepting applications for this year's moose hunt lottery.

    Applications for the lottery cost $15 for residents and $25 for non-residents and are available online at huntnh.com or from any Fish and Game Department license agent. The deadline is May 26.

    New Hampshire proposes to issue 51 permits this year, the lowest number since the state started its current lottery system in 1988.

    Permits have declined in recent years, partly because of the impact of parasites, both winter tick and brainworm, on moose. Last year, 71 lottery permits were issued at the June lottery.

    This year's hunt runs from Oct. 17 to 29.
