Public Hearing on Proposed Moose Lottery Application Changes
CONCORD, N.H. -- The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department has proposed slight changes in the regulations for the moose lottery application process and will hold a public hearing on November 1, 2005, at 10 a.m. at N.H. Fish and Game headquarters on Hazen Drive in Concord to discuss the proposal.
The proposed amendments clarify some of the information required by Fish and Game for the moose lottery process and on the application, with particular reference to the driver's license number or non-driver's identification number and how to report any changes of that number to Fish and Game so that the Department can maintain accurate records of bonus points in the lottery process.
New Hampshire's moose hunt permits are given out through a lottery. Bonus points are important because they can improve a hunter's chance of winning in the lottery. Under the bonus point system in place since 2004, applicants have their name entered into the lottery one time for each consecutive year they apply. Once they are drawn, they lose all bonus points and cannot apply again for three years.
