CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - The deadline is approaching for to bid on one of two moose hunting permits being auctioned off by the Wildlife Heritage Foundation of New Hampshire.
The winners will receive free 2014 New Hampshire hunting licenses as well as the moose hunting permits. The next three highest bidders will receive free 2014 hunting licenses. In the case of a tie, the earliest postmarked signed bid will win the permit.
Deadline to enter is Aug. 8.
Proceeds from the auction help support fish and wildlife initiatives and education programs. This year, the foundation voluntarily reduced the number of permits being auctioned due to a concern that the moose population is under stress from ticks.
Last year, 19 bids were placed. The highest bid was $10,000.
