CONCORD, New Hampshire — New Hampshire's 2016 moose lottery is open, and participants have through May 27 to enter.
Entering the lottery costs $15 for New Hampshire residents and $25 for non-residents.
New Hampshire's Fish and Game Department says each applicant can enter once a year. A bonus point system improves the chances for unsuccessful applicants who apply each consecutive year.
Last year, more than 9,500 people entered the lottery for the chance to win one of 105 permits.
More than 1,400 people continued to accrue bonus points because they submitted an application for a point only. Hunters from 10 different states won permits in the lottery.
The exact number of moose hunt permits that will be offered for this fall's hunt has not yet been determined.
