From the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department - Lucky Day for 2013 NH Moose Hunt Permit Winners
Concord, New Hampshire - The adventure of a lifetime is in store for 275 people who have been offered permits to hunt moose in New Hampshire this October. They are the lucky winners in the state's annual moose hunt permit lottery drawing, held today with great fanfare at the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department's headquarters in Concord, N.H.
Governor Maggie Hassan kicked off the festivities by pushing the button to start the computerized random selection of this year's winners. "This lottery is not only an important part of New Hampshire's tradition and culture, but it boosts our economy by bringing people and tourism dollars to the state as people come here from all over the world to hunt," said Hassan.
The Governor participated in the traditional reading of the winners' names to a packed audience of 100 or more people who were present at the N.H. Fish and Game Department in hopes of hearing their names on the list of winners who would be offered a permit to participate in this year's hunt.
