Early indications are that New Hampshire game officials want to increase the number of moose hunting permits it issues over the next couple of years. Last year there were 525 permits issued. The increase would boost it up to over 700.

Estimates are that the New Hampshire moose population stands at 6,400 and growing. Authorities want to reduce the numbers by about 10% over the next two to three years. To do this would require more hunting permits to be available.

The results of this plan are all part of a larger 10-year management plan state officials have been working on. The plan would call for a fall shotgun season for turkeys and more hunting opportunities for antlerless white tail deer.
