If you have not applied for a moose permit yet, there’s still time! The deadline to apply for a 2021 Vermont moose hunting permit is June 30.
The department will issue 60 either-sex moose hunting permits and 40 antlerless moose hunting permits available this year for a hunt limited to Vermont’s Wildlife Management Unit (WMU) E in the northeastern corner of the state.
Hunters who held a permit within the past five years are not eligible to apply for a permit or to buy a bonus point.
Lottery applications for hunting permits are $10 for residents and $25 for nonresidents. Winners of the permit lottery will purchase resident hunting permits for $100 and nonresident hunting permits for $350.
Also, although a “bonus point freeze” was in place for the 2018 and 2019 moose seasons, due to limited or no moose permits being available for those years, that is no longer in place. Applicants must continue to annually submit a moose permit application if they wish to retain their past bonus points.
