CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire’s annual moose hunt lottery is open.

Entering the lottery costs $15 for New Hampshire residents and $25 for nonresidents.

Applications for 2017 must be postmarked or submitted online by midnight on May 26, or delivered to the licensing office at Fish and Game headquarters in Concord before 4 p.m. that day. Winners will be selected through a computerized random drawing on June 16.

Each applicant can enter the moose hunt lottery once a year. A bonus point system improves the chances for unsuccessful applicants who apply each consecutive year

Last year, more than 8,100 people entered the lottery for the chance to win one of 71 permits. More than 1,400 people continued to accrue bonus points because they submitted an application for a point only. Hunters from seven different states won permits in the lottery.
