CONCORD, N.H. (AP) – A 69-year-old Vermont man bagged the biggest moose so far in New Hampshire’s annual hunt.

State game officials say Walter Celley of Cabot, Vt., got his 820-pound bull in far northwestern New Hampshire. The moose’s antlers measured 61 inches across.

The hunt began Saturday and runs through this Sunday. State Fish and Game officials say hunters got 147 moose in the first two days.

The state held a lottery for the 515 permits.

The department’s Kristine Rines says the results were about the same as for the first two days of last season.
