This year marks the 12th year of the auction. For 2020 we were granted one moose hunt permit, in line with state moose population management goals. The highest bidder will receive a free 2020 New Hampshire Moose Hunt permit, as well as a general 2020 NH hunting license, 2020 NH bear tag and 2020 NH turkey tag. Last year, the Foundation received seven bids, with the winning bid of $30,199.99 coming from Berlin, Massachusetts.
We will be opening the bids on August 17, 2020 and will notify the winning bidder on that day. The successful bidder will be able to harvest one moose of either sex in most Wildlife Management Units. Individuals who receive a permit for the 2020 New Hampshire open moose hunt lottery will not be eligible to participate in the auction. Additional information about moose hunting in New Hampshire, including rules, permits, and licenses can be found on the NH Fish and Game website. https://www.wildlife.state.nh.us/hunting/moose.html and https://www.wildlife.state.nh.us/hunting/documents/moose-regulations.pdf
Proceeds from this year’s auction help support critical fish and wildlife conservation initiatives, in addition to education, habitat, fish hatchery, and law enforcement programs and activities, as examples.
