How many points do you need to take a moose in ME?

I remember my friend in ND, who shot a moose there several years ago, said you get ONE lifetime tag for moose...that's it!

He still gets trailcam pics of moose every year...catches you off guard: doe, doe, nice buck, doe, small buck, HOLY (*@#(*@ haha

My understanding without points nearly impossible. More the points better your chaces.

Wow, I didn't realize you could buy them in ME. I started last year to hopefully pull in VT for an archery Moose tag. I think my odds are better for winning the Mega Millions.

It's more of a donation to the state of Maine...:D Non-residents get 415 permits. It is a tough lottery....

 

This is my 14th year applying.. I have 27 bonus points. :censored:

 

Good luck!

just make sure you keep up with it and put the dates on your calender, because if you miss a year you lose all your points. co worker of mine missed a year and lost all what he had accumulated over the years. I guess they used to send out a reminder via post card, but now they send an email and he missed it somehow.

Just spoke with Oxbow Lodge, he said roughly 25 points needed to draw a tag. so in the coming 7 yrs I will need to purchase more then just one :banghead::banghead:

Dan, not true about the one point, per there web page you can buy more points every year I'm not sure of the limit per year. I purchase for the first time, so now starting next year I will be more then just one

it dont matter how many you purchase you only get to add one point a year to your total.

 

There is a matrix that allows more than 1 point after a certain number of years. For example, if you had been purchasing for 15 years now, you would have 30 points. 30 years you would have 180 points.

It doesn't make much of a difference to nonresidents, as it does for residents who can only purchase one chance per year.

Non-residents can purchase as many as they want, but only get 10% of the total permits allocated.
