MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - 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.

Proceeds from the moose hunting permit auction help fund Vermont Fish and Wildlife educational programs. Winning bids are typically at least $4,000.

The lottery drawing for 355 regular moose season permits and 50 archery season permits will be held Aug. 1 in Montpelier.
