Vt. Fish and Wildlife nets $24K in moose hunt auction

Posted: Updated:

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Five hunters are going to get a chance to bag a moose in Vermont's October moose seasons after submitting a total of almost $24,000 in bids as part of the Department of Fish & Wildlife's 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 to the highest bidders.

This year's 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 fee. The winners can hunt in any one of Vermont's Wildlife Management Units open for moose hunting.

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

Auction winners are:

  • Marian Jusko, Connecticut, $5,150
  • Donald Davis, New Hampshire, $4,901
  • James Stinson, New Hampshire, $4,650
  • Colin Haas, Vermont $4,502
  • Jeffrey Daignault, Massachusetts, $4,501
