Scientists To Take The Stage In Different Kind Of Moose Fest

AUGUSTA, Maine - Maine's annual moose hunt lottery is typically part of a big celebration of the giant animals, but this year scientists and game wardens will take the stage. The lottery is scheduled for June 13. It's usually a live event paired with a moose festival that includes events such as a moose calling competition. This year, the event is happening entirely online.

The Maine Department of Inland Fisheries & Wildlife said biologists and game wardens will also give presentations about moose biology, management and hunting techniques.
