WILMOT, N.H. -- On September 24, 2005, at 10 a.m., the NH Locked Moose
Antler Project, Inc., working in partnership with the New Hampshire
Fish and Game Department and the Conservation Officers' Relief Association
will hold an unveiling ceremony for its life-size taxidermy exhibit
depicting two adult moose. The enormous bulls permanently locked antlers
in nearby Gile State Forest two years ago and, unable to separate, died.

All donors, supporters, members of the media and the public are invited
to attend the brief ceremony which will be held at the Gardiner
Memorial Wayside off of Route 4A at the Wilmot/Springfield town line.

The concept for the exhibit, named "Forever Locked - The Story of the
Battling Bull Moose of Fowlertown," began on October 9, 2003, when New
London resident Ray Deragon discovered the recent remains of these North
Country monarchs. He contacted Conservation Officer John Wimsatt who
inspected the scene with Deragon. The two developed the project and,
almost two years later, after an extensive fundraising campaign and
countless hours of volunteer work, the exhibit is nearly complete.

The $40,000 project, all created with donated funds, is designed to be
mobile and will travel to a variety of outdoor shows, state fairs, and
other venues. It is a one-of-a-kind, museum-quality educational exhibit
dedicated to supporting the mission of the N.H. Fish and Game

"Forever Locked" will be on display at the Deerfield Fair from
September 29-October 2, 2005.

If you plan to attend the ceremony, please RSVP to Lt. John Wimsatt at
(603) 271-3361, or (603) 868-1095, or [email protected]. Light
refreshments will be served. For further information about this project visit

the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department works in partnership with the
