Yes, it does happen. We started putting in 2001, in Maine. I was drawn the 1st year. For the last 3 years we have been putting in for Vermont. This year my dad was drawn in Vt. Will be leaving for the 2nd season on 23 Oct. It does happen.
Good luck
P.S. You don't have to have a guide, You can do it yourself. It really isn't that hard until there is one on the ground. Then if you have to, cut quarters, load into a good solid frame pack and go.

Can you do that in Maine? I can't remember, but I thought one of those states, either Maine or VT, it had to be brought whole to a check-in station.

whole or quartered

Last I knew it was legal in Maine to tag a quartered moose. Pretty sure you had to have the head though.

Regarding getting drawn, yup it happens, although I applied about 20 times before getting drawn. Just makes it all the sweeter when your name finally comes up!

Good luck, - Jay

Applied for the first time in 2004 and got drawn. My father in law applied the following year and he got drawn. Pure luck but it does happen. I know Maine residents who have applied for 30 years and never got drawn.

Like one of the others said, depending on what zone you got drawn for, don't waste your money on a guide. The first year we did hire a guide but the second time we did not and didn't have an issue finding them. The tricky part was getting them out of the woods but we got r done.

Well i actually have known people to just have a hard time getting one. My stepfather had been sending in for a permit since the lottery was started. It took him 20 some odd years to get one!!! I got one my first year, 10 years old lol. Shot my first moose before i shot a deer Thumbs up No luck since then though. But if you look around there are people who sell theres
