Sealed bids are due to the Wildlife Heritage Foundation by August 9, 2019 via US Mail to our address: WHFNH, 54 Portsmouth Street, Concord, NH 03301
This year marks the 11th year of the auction. For 2019 we were granted one moose hunt permit, in line with state moose population management goals. The highest bidder will receive a 2019 New Hampshire Moose Hunt permit, as well as a general NH hunting license. Last year, the Foundation received eight bids, with the winning bid of $25,199.12 coming from Berlin, Massachusetts.
We will be opening the bids on August 13, 2019 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. The exceptions are Units H2N, H2S, and K, where permit issuance has been suspended. Individuals who receive a permit for the 2019 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 New Hampshire Fish and Game website.
