In addition to the regular moose hunt lottery, for the last seven years the department has auctioned off a number of licenses to the highest bidders.
This year's highest bid was $5,150, submitted by Marian Jusko, of Connecticut.
Bids do not include the cost of a hunting license or a moose hunting permit fee. The winners can hunt in of Vermont's Wildlife Management Units open for moose hunting.
The money raised by the auction helps fund Fish & Wildlife recreational programs, such as the Green Mountain Conservation Camps for young people.
