AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) — Two of Maine’s biggest hunting seasons are kicking off with a day reserved for state residents.
Saturday is “Maine Resident Only Day” for moose and deer hunting. Hunters can take deer all over the state, though any-deer permits are needed to hunt deer without antlers in designated parts of the state.
Resident day for moose is limited to two wildlife management districts in southwestern Maine and the Belgrade Lakes region.
The general hunting seasons for deer and moose follow resident day. They begin on Monday and last until Nov. 25. Moose season remains limited to the two wildlife management districts.
