The results are in for the Wildlife Heritage moose permit auction and they are impressive. A total of 12 bids were received with the five winning bids ranging from $7,250 to $8,750, raising a total of $40,900.
“The quality of the hunting experience here in New Hampshire continues to be a big draw for both in-state and out-of-state participants,” said Steve White, chairman of the Wildlife Heritage Foundation.
The annual auction is the primary fundraiser for the foundation, and a real boost to the foundation’s ability to fund Fish and Game programs. The Wildlife Heritage Foundation is the official non-profit partner of the Fish and Game Department. The foundation raises money and works with wildlife professionals and conservation education partners to fund the department’s conservation of wildlife and natural places important to New Hampshire’s family traditions, such as hiking, hunting, fishing and watching wildlife.
