Deadline for moose hunt online applications May 14
Augusta — The deadline for online applications for the Maine moose hunt is May 14. The moose lottery drawing will be held in June.
If one applied for a moose permit last year or the year before, all of your information is pre-filled into this year's online application. To start, type in your first name, last name and date of birth the same way as in 2013 or 2012. The computer will look up your information. Review personal data and make any necessary changes.
Once you have filled out and paid for your application, you will be able to print out a confirmation page. An email confirmation also will be sent to you.
Bonus points are awarded for each consecutive year the applicant has applied for the lottery since 1998 without being selected and each bonus point gives the applicant an additional chance in the drawing.
Bonus points are earned at the rate of one per year for years one to five, two per year for years six to 10, three per year for years 11 to 15 and 10 per year for years 16 and beyond.
Since 2011, applicants can skip a year and not lose their bonus points. So if you applied in 2012 but not 2013, you still have your points if you apply in 2014.
