Attention all Maine Moose hunters! Now is the time to sign-up for a coveted Maine moose hunting permit. To hunt moose in Maine, you MUST have one of these permits. But first you have to enter the permit lottery. Then you have to have a little luck on your side. Last year over 52,000 people signed up for the lottery. The Maine Department of Inland Fisheries & Wildlife issued 2,740 permits, Nearly 90-percent of the permits went to Maine residents, so at least you have that going for you.
