This morning, 107.7 The Pulse broadcast live for the 14th straight year from annual moose hunt lottery drawing, held at the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department in Concord.
An enthusiastic audience was at Fish and Game to hear the drawing results in person. They enjoyed doughnuts and swapped backwoods stories, all hopeful they might hear their name called this year. Many stopped by the Pulse table to trade stories with Peter and Pat.
Winners were selected from a pool of 5,875 applicants. In addition, over 1,170 people submitted an application for a bonus point only, but were not included in the lottery. The bonus point system improves the chance of winning for each consecutive year entered and not selected. The overall odds of being drawn this year were 1 in 77 for state residents and 1 in 341 for nonresidents. In addition to many New Hampshire residents, permit winners hailed from Wisconsin, New York, Michigan, Massachusetts, and Maine.
