Northern New England states cool off on moose hunt
In Maine, the number of people entering the lottery has declined substantially in the last 10 years.

GRAY — New England’s autumn moose hunting tradition is attracting fewer prospective hunters as the animals’ populations decline and sportsmen lose patience with the long odds of getting a coveted permit.

Moose hunting in Maine, Vermont and New Hampshire remains popular, as tens of thousands of people from around the country continue to enter the states’ moose lotteries in the hopes of bagging one of the massive animals for a trophy or some steaks. But state data show the number of people entering the lotteries has declined substantially from ten years ago: 73,775 to 53,577 in Maine, 15,505 to 10,420 in New Hampshire and 13,382 to 9,666 in Vermont.
