mail-in application), or pick up a moose hunt lottery application

Moose hunt lottery applications submitted by mail must be
postmarked no later than midnight, May 27, 2011, to be eligible for

license to enter the lottery.
Whether you’re applying online or with a paper application,
don’t wait until the last minute to apply! To minimize the chance

little extra time in case your application is incomplete or not
filled out properly. If this happens before the deadline, your
application will be returned and, if there’s time, you can correct
and resubmit. Every year Fish and Game gets a few last-minute paper
applications that cannot be corrected in time, as well as calls
from disappointed folks who waited until the last minute to apply
online and missed the deadline because of a computer glitch.
So enter the lottery today for a chance to take part in the New
Hampshire moose hunt, truly the adventure of a lifetime. The moose
season runs from October 15 to 23, 2011 (by permit only).
