It's finally here! The 2018 Maine Moose Lottery. The lottery will be held this Saturday starting at 2pm at the Skowhegan Fairgrounds. You can see the results online starting at 6pm at the Maine Fish and Wildlife Page. People wait years, sometimes DECADES to win a moose permit. Luckily the odds are better if you're a Mainer. As it should be!

There will be close to 50,000 hunters in the lottery. Only around 2100 will "win."

Your odds of getting a permit in the lottery if you are a Mainer: about 1 in 93

Your odds if you are a non-resident: about 1 in 1332. Good luck with THAT!

if you are going to the Moose Festival this weekend, have fun and good luck!
