SCARBOROUGH, Maine (AP) — The Cabela’s hunting, fishing and outdoors outfitter store in Scarborough will be the host for next year’s moose lottery drawing.

Cabela’s says it’s planning a full day of activities for the annual event, which will be held next September.

This year’s lottery drawing drew 700 people to the L.L. Bean store in Freeport, which is a competitor of Cabela’s.

Nearly 50,000 people applied for this year’s lottery, when names were drawn for the 3,140 available moose permits for the fall moose hunt.
