The annual drawing to select the lucky hunters who will be offered a permit to hunt moose in New Hampshire this autumn will be June 21 at 9 a.m.

The drawing will be held at the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department in Concord. Fish and Game will issue 275 moose hunting permits this year. The public and interested media are invited to be on hand to watch the excitement as the names are drawn. Winners are selected through a computerized random drawing.

Radio personality Peter St. James will broadcast live from Fish and Game headquarters from 6-10 a.m., with the drawing starting at 9 a.m. Tune in to radio station WTPL (107.7 FM), which can be heard from Nashua to the Lakes Region; or in the Upper Valley, the broadcast can be heard on 94.3 FM or 1400 AM. The station will also stream the audio on its website.

Lottery results will also be available online. Official lists of winners and alternates will be posted on the Fish and Game website by 11 a.m. on Friday. Please be patient; the large spike in web traffic on lottery day can cause download delays.

Limited-edition 2013 moose hunt T-shirts will be available for purchase online.

New Hampshire’s 2013 moose hunt runs from Oct. 19-27. For more about moose hunting in New Hampshire, visit this link.
