    MONTPELIER - Vermont's 2013 moose auction is open for bids.

    The auction for five moose hunting permits is open until Aug. 21 with a minimum bid amount of $1,500.

    Winners will choose to hunt in one of several wildlife management units open to moose hunting. They'll be able to choose to hunt during the Oct. 1-7 archery season, or in the Oct. 19-24 regular season.

    Bids do not include the cost of a hunting license or moose hunting permit fee.
