From the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife
-- Online applications for the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife’s 2010 Moose Permit Lottery are due by 11:59 p.m. May 14.
The only applications still being accepted are those filed online at www.mefishwildlife.com. The 2010 Moose Permit Lottery Drawing will be held June 17 in Freeport.
“We’re encouraging applicants to apply online during the day or at their earliest convenience before the close of business at 5 p.m. on Friday,” said Bill Swan, IF&W Director of Licensing. “If questions arise, applicants can contact us so we can assist them.”
Hunters find using the online application system convenient, Swan said. This year, 3,140 permits will be drawn for the fall harvest. Last year, 82 percent of hunters were successful.
For hunters who do not have a computer, IF&W advises them to ask a friend or relative with a computer for help, use a computer at work during lunch or a break or use a computer at a local library or an internet café. Hunters with questions can call the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife at (207)287-8000.
