2009 N.H. Moose Hunt Permits Available Through New Auction
Proceeds to Benefit Wildlife Heritage Foundation of New Hampshire
CONCORD, N.H. -- Great news for prospective moose hunters! This August, the Wildlife Heritage Foundation of New Hampshire is auctioning five moose hunting permits for the 2009 moose hunt, along with licenses, as part of a new program to support the conservation of wildlife and natural places throughout the state. The permits will allow the holder to harvest one moose of either sex in a wildlife management unit of the holder's choice. All proceeds will benefit the Wildlife Heritage Foundation of New Hampshire.
For more information on the auction, or to request an official bidders packet, write to the Wildlife Heritage Foundation of NH, PO Box 3993, Concord, NH 03302-3993, or email email@example.com. Deadline for receipt of bids is September 1, 2009.
Successful bidders will need to show proof of a previous hunting license or a certificate of completion of an approved hunter education training program. Individuals who received a permit in the 2009 New Hampshire moose hunt lottery are not eligible to participate in the auction.
The moose hunting season in New Hampshire is right around the corner -- October 17-25, 2009. For more about hunting moose in the Granite State, visit www.huntnh.com/Hunting/Hunt_species/hunt_moose.htm.
The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department will provide the five permits to the Wildlife Heritage Foundation of New Hampshire under the authority granted by RSA 206:33-e. All funds generated from auction of the permits will be used by the Wildlife Heritage Foundation in accordance with RSA 206:33-c to fund N.H. Fish and Game conservation programs that might not otherwise be possible. The moose permits were authorized by House Bill 41, passed by the New Hampshire Legislature earlier this year, which allows the Executive Director of the N.H. Fish and Game Department to donate certain hunting and fishing permits to the Wildlife Heritage Foundation of New Hampshire to support the Department's mission.
The Wildlife Heritage Foundation of New Hampshire is a private, 501c3 non-profit organization created in September 2006 to work hand-in-hand with scientists and educators to fund wildlife conservation efforts in support of important family traditions such as hiking, hunting, fishing and watching wildlife. Over the past year and a half, the Foundation has supported popular educational programs such as Discover WILD New Hampshire Day, WILD TIMES for Kids publications distributed in public schools, and the statewide N.H. Hunting and Fishing Day Expo and Tour coming this fall on September 26. To learn more about how you can help support the Foundation's work, visit www.wildnh.com/foundation.
