AUGUSTA, Maine — Maine’s moose permit lottery is coming to the St. John Valley for the first time.
The Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife announced Tuesday that the drawing will take place June 18 at the University of Maine at Fort Kent.
Commissioner Roland “Danny” Martin said the drawing provides an opportunity for local businesses, including those involved in hunting and fishing, to promote Aroostook County and exhibit their products.
The state’s moose hunt is held in the fall. For the past 10 years, the drawing has been held at different locations around Maine. Last year’s was in Kittery, at the opposite end of the state.
