The Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife is hosting the annual Moose Permit Lottery with a virtual drawing this year.

The MDIFW said they were inspired by the annual Moose Hunting Lottery Festival. The schedule has been organized to make it convenient and easy for everyone. The Maine Moose Hunting Permit Drawing is set for this Saturday, June 12, 2021. The time of the drawing is in the afternoon from 1 - 4:30 pm.

If you happen to miss the drawing or the time it takes place does not fit your schedule, you can see the results of the drawing on the internet. Officials will post the lottery recipients about an hour and half after making the announcements. Look for the results at approximately 6 pm on the same day, Saturday, June 12, 2021.

Hunters are excited every year to see if they get picked in the lottery to hunt a Maine moose. You want to make sure you attend the virtual event.
