CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire’s moose season has come to an end, with at least 91 hunters succeeding in bagging a moose during the nine-day period.

The Fish and Game Department says a total of 127 permits were issued, representing a statewide success rate of 72 percent. That’s fewer permits than in recent years, due to a drop in the moose population.

More than 10,000 people entered the moose hunt lottery for a chance to win a permit for the New Hampshire moose hunt. About 85 percent of the permits went to state residents. The odds of winning a moose permit in the lottery are about 1 in 59 for New Hampshire residents and 1 in 221 for non-residents.
