Maine Disabled Veterans Controlled Moose Hunt

2019 Disabled Veterans Controlled Moose Lottery

We are pleased to announce the launch of this year’s Disabled Veterans Controlled Moose Hunt. As in years’ past, we are again partnering with the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife (IF&W) and Smoldering Lake Outfitters to provide permits, individual guides for the hunters, and all equipment for the Hunt.

IF&W has allocated moose hunting permits for disabled veterans who are residents of Maine – and a small group of non-resident disabled veterans – to participate in the Controlled Moose Hunt. This Hunt is not like the regular IF&W moose lottery, as it requires each hunter to team up with a registered Maine Guide who has specific training for the Controlled Moose Hunt. This year, there will be three Hunts in August and two in September. All five will take place on farm land specified by IF&W.

Please note that this is a one-time Hunt. If you have ever tagged a moose through the Disabled Veterans Controlled Moose Hunt, you are ineligible to hunt again.

All Primary and Alternates listed below will be receiving a letter from the Bureau with all information within 30 days.
