Last week the Maine Legislature approved a bill that is designed to offer additional hunting opportunities for moose hunters that have always desired to hunt moose in Maine. “Hunting Outfitter” as defined by the law will be allotted a varying amount of permits through a special lottery to hunt for a Maine moose. The state will conduct a special lottery prior to the general moose hunt lottery, the total amount of permits for this lottery will depend on the overall number of permits issued for the entire state. These permits will be purchased from the state for $1500.00 and can be sold at fair market value by the outfitter. I have included a link to a article announcing the news so that you can read it for yourself.
