BETHEL, Maine (AP) - Maine wildlife managers are accepting applications to participate in the state’s moose hunting lottery.

The Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife will accept paper applications until April 1 and online applications until May 14. The drawing will take place on June 13 at Moose Festival in Bethel.

Moose hunting season will take place in the fall and is limited to specific wildlife management districts.

The Maine wildlife department says 2,022 hunters succeeded in harvesting a moose out in 2014 - about two-thirds of the hunters who received 3,095 permits. That is down from a 73 percent success rate in 2013.
