MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) — The Vermont Department of Fish and Wildlife says hunters who would like to enter the fall moose-hunt lottery can now do so online.

Wildlife director Mark Scott says entering the online lottery is quick and easy.

The deadline for entering is June 10.

Printed moose hunt applications are available at license agents, but officials are encouraging people to apply online.

Lottery applications are $10 for residents and $25 for nonresidents. Permit winners must purchase resident hunting permits for $100 or nonresident hunting permits for $350.

Vermont is going to issue 285 moose hunting permits by lottery for the regular Oct. 18-23 moose season and 50 permits for an archery moose season Oct. 1-7.
