Moose fever: 2,080 win hunt permits

CARIBOU, Maine — More than 2,000 hunters, the vast majority from Maine, got lucky, winning one of the moose permits that were up for grabs this year in the state’s annual lottery.

Winning numbers were announced Saturday afternoon at the Caribou Wellness and Recreation Center.

Despite the event’s remote location in Maine’s northernmost county, the venue was packed with hopeful hunters.

The annual lottery is a way for Maine to limit the number of moose taken each year, while giving hunters a fair chance to participate in the popular hunting season.
