AUGUSTA, Maine — Maine’s fish and game department says applications for this year’s moose hunting lottery are now available online.

The deadline for online applications is 11:59 p.m. on May 13. Thousands of hunters complete their applications to win a permit through the lottery on the department’s website, www.mefishwildlife.com.

The state no longer prints or mails paper applications for the moose lottery. Hunters unable to apply online can get a paper application in The Maine Sportsman or Northwoods Sporting Journal.

The 2011 Maine Moose Permit Lottery will be held in mid-June at Cabela’s in Scarborough.
