Caribou to host 2017 Moose Permit Lottery

Earlier today Chandler Woodcock, Commissioner of the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife announced that the 2017 Moose Permit Lottery would be held in Caribou.

“This fantastic event, which draws hundreds of people from around Maine and New England, is an excellent opportunity for people to see all that Caribou has to offer,” said City Manager Austin Bleess. “The City is honored to host such a great event.”

Often described as the “hunt of a lifetime” many people wait years to hear their name called at the lottery.  The lottery often receives nearly 49,000 entries, and draws entries from all 50 states and around the world. The lottery is a chance for those that entered to hear their name called, and realize the chance of a lifetime.

The City submitted an application to the Maine IF&W earlier this year and received local support from State Senator Peter Edgecomb for the application. Bleess cited the great leadership of Event and Marketing Coordinator Lydia Kieffer as the driving force behind the application.

Bleess stated “We are very excited to host the event in 2017, and we look forward to hosting a weekend full of activities around the permit lottery.”
