Maine’s Moose Permit Lottery Applications are Now Open
If you're looking to get in on the 2020 Moose permit lottery, you'll want to get your application in before the deadline. Registration for the lottery is open right now and will close at 11:59 pm on May 14th.
According to the Bangor Daily News 2019 saw a total of 2,820 moose permits though there is not yet a set number for the total number of permits that will be allotted for this year.
When you enter for this year's permit, you can select which season you'd like to hunt in and which WMDs (wildlife management districts) you'd like to hunt in. The districts are broken down by numerical zones.
Maine's moose hunt began in 1980, and after a one year break to study the results, resumed again in 1982 and has happened every year since.
