     | August 23,2013

    MONTPELIER ó Five hunters are going to get a chance to bag a moose in Vermontís October moose seasons after submitting a total of almost $24,000 in bids as part of the Department of Fish and Wildlifeís moose hunt auction.

    In addition to the regular moose hunt lottery, for the last seven years the department has auctioned off a number of licenses.

    This yearís highest bid was $5,150, submitted by Marian Jusko, of Connecticut.

    Bids do not include the cost of a hunting license or a moose hunting permit. The winners can hunt in any of Vermontís wildlife management units open for moose hunting.

    The money raised by the auction helps fund Fish and Wildlife recreational programs, such as the Green Mountain Conservation Camps for young people.
