AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - Maine wildlife authorities have started taking applications for the upcoming moose hunting season.

The state gives out most of its moose permits through a lottery that attracts tens of thousands of applicants. Last year Maine received more than 65,000 applications for about 3,100 permits.

The state started accepting the applications this month and is scheduled to take them through May 13. The hunt itself takes place from late September to late November this year.

This year’s “Maine Resident Only Day” for moose hunters is scheduled for Oct. 30.
