CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - The Wildlife Heritage Foundation of New Hampshire will be auctioning off two moose hunting permits for the 2014 season.

The two winning bidders will receive free 2014 New Hampshire hunting licenses as well as the moose hunting permits. The next three highest bidders will receive free 2014 hunting licenses. In the case of a tie, the earliest postmarked signed bid will win the permit.

LHR Sporting Arms in Rochester will give the highest bidder a half off coupon toward its new RCF Centerfire Rifle. The rifle has the option of seven interchangeable barrel configurations on one receiver. The rifle will not be on the market until fall giving the highest bidder the chance to acquire one of the first ones.

Proceeds from the auction help support fish and wildlife initiatives and education programs. This year, the foundation voluntarily reduced the number of permits being auctioned due to a concern that the moose population is under stress from ticks.

Last year, 19 bids were placed from nine states for five permits. The highest bid was $10,000. Winners came from New Hampshire, Massachusetts, New York, Wisconsin and Washington.

Bid forms and instructions are available from the foundation by email at [email protected] or by calling (603) 496-2778. Bids must be received by Aug. 8 and will be opened Aug. 12. The permits and license are valid only for the Oct. 18-26 moose hunting season and will allow the holder to harvest one moose of either sex in a wildlife management unit of the permit holder’s choice.
