Capt it has been steadily going down over the last 4yrs. They peaked at like 620 tags yrs ago. Last year I believe it was around 350 tags, and this year was under 300.

thanks HH. I knew it seemed a lot less than in years past. They should put more tags aside for residents with as few as they are giving out now, in my opinion.

The non-resident quota for moose permits is capped at the same percentage of non-resident hunting license sold the year before. So basically if 10% of all NH hunting licenses sold were to non-residents in 2012 than no more than 10% of the moose permits in 2013 will go to non-residents.

I actually think this is a pretty fair system.

I dont think that's an accurate way to gauge NR moose tags. A lot of MA residents buy licenses so they can duck hunt on Sundays and have no interest in moose so why use them in the equation? IMO nhfg should draw 90% of the tags for residents and the other 10 for NR.

This years Non-Resident permits equaled out to roughly 16% of the total permits given. 44 was the total I counted. No doubt people buy licenses to hunt Sundays but not all those people will put in for a Moose permit.

Bottom line is if we capped it at 10% it would result in 16 more permits for residents. This would equal roughly $2400 in revenue for Fish and Game ($150 for the moose permit, and I assuming these people would buy the hunting license whether or not they won a permit) versus $9600 in revenue if you add the $500 permit fee and $100 for a non-resident hunting license.

$7200 might not seem like much but it all goes towards Moose herd management.
