MONTPELIER — If you’re unlucky in the Vermont moose permit lottery drawing Aug. 1, here’s another chance with better odds, but it will cost you.
Hunters wanting a chance in the lottery had to buy a ticket by July 5 for the chance to purchase one of 355 moose hunting permits being made available this year.
