The 2019 Maine Moose Lottery was held this weekend at Cabela's in Scarborough. 2,820 people had their name called. The odds of hitting this lottery is always pretty tough. This year 59,185 hunters applied for the 2,820 permits. Mainers get a bit of a break but still are up against a 1 in 81 shot at winning Non-residents have it much worse with a 1 in 1,217 shot (pardon the pun) of winning. Moose hunting season begins in Maine on September 23rd. Congrats to all the lottery winners!
