Fish and Game headquarters in Concord before 4:00 p.m. that day. If you're one of those who waits 'til the end, the end is HERE! You must submit a complete and accurate application by the deadline.

Permit holders can choose another hunter of any age to accompany them on the hunt; only one moose may be taken per permit. New Hampshire's 2009 moose hunt runs from October 17 to 25.
