CONCORD - The deadline for entering the New Hampshire moose hunt lottery is May 25. It costs $15 for residents and $25 for nonresidents to enter the lottery (non-refundable). A total of 51 permits are proposed to be issued this year. The state's moose hunt will run from Oct. 20-28, 2018. Last year, the statewide hunter success rate was 69 percent.

Each applicant can enter the lottery once a year. A bonus point system improves the chances for unsuccessful applicants who apply each consecutive year, however, if they miss a year, they lose their points.

Hunters who are drawn and accept a permit are not eligible to enter the lottery or apply for a bonus point for the following three years.

Anyone can apply now by visiting, where you can apply online or print out a mail-in application. Lottery applications for 2018 must be postmarked or submitted online by midnight Eastern Time on May 25 or delivered to NH Fish and Game headquarters in Concord before 4 p.m. that day.
