Deadlines approach for moose permit filings

The Associated Press

AUGUSTA — The deadline for applying for the 2013 Maine moose permit lottery is approaching.

Paper applications must be dropped off at the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife Augusta office (284 State St.), or postmarked to that address, by Monday.

Online applications can be found at www.mefishwildlife.com and must be completed by May 14 at 11:59 p.m.

Permit winners and their sub-permitees will be able to hunt in one of the department's 25 wildlife management districts, which cover more than 21,000 square miles.

Legislative changes put into effect last year give longtime lottery applicants who've never won a permit a better chance at winning.

This year's moose permit lottery winners will be announced in June.
