Posted October 18

— New Hampshire's moose hunters achieved a 26 percent success rate during the first two days of the annual hunting season.

Wildlife officials say opening weekend, Oct. 15-16, saw a total of 19 moose taken by hunters statewide.

A total of 72 moose hunters are taking part this year.

Last year 31 percent of moose hunters were successful during the opening weekend.

Biologists are collecting blood samples of the moose to test for West Nile Virus and Eastern Equine Encephalitis.

The nine-day moose hunt continues through Sunday.
