New Hampshire's moose hunt runs from October 20 - 28, 2007. The increased number of permits being offered will help carry out the Department's Big Game Management Plan objective of modestly reducing the moose population in the Connecticut Lakes Region. In 2006, more than 16,300 applicants entered the N.H. moose hunt lottery.
