WATERBURY ó Hunters have until Aug. 21 to submit a bid for Vermontís auction for moose hunting permits.
The five winning bidders will choose whether to hunt in Vermontís archery moose season from Oct. 1-7 or in the regular moose season from Oct. 20-25.
They also pick the area of the state where they want to hunt.
Bids must be submitted in writing in special sealed envelopes available from the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department. The deadline is Aug. 21.
The department says winning bids are typically around $4,000 and help fund Vermont Fish & Wildlife education programs. The bids do not include the cost of a hunting license or moose hunting permit, which costs $100 for Vermont residents and $350 for nonresidents.
