Moose hunters flock to Bethel for lottery draw
2,740 permits were allocated, 90 percent of which went to Maine residents.

ETHEL — The era of hunters who have never been drawn in the annual Maine moose lottery – screaming in joy if they hear their names called – might be a thing of the past.

On Saturday, 2,740 permits were allocated, down 11 percent from last year’s 3,095. Nearly 90 percent of the permits went to Maine residents.

The chances of winning a permit this year were 1 in 70 according to Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife. About half as many hunters put in for a permit compared to a decade ago, when upwards of 90,000 bought chances in the lottery.
