Maine deer hunters will have another chance to bag their deer this fall as the muzzleloader season for deer begins on Monday, December 2nd.
In addition the expanded archery season also continues.
The firearms season on deer closes with the end of hunting hours on Saturday, November 30th. All indications are this season has been one of the best in recent years in terms on number of deer harvested and the health of the herd.
The muzzleloader season for deer runs until December 7th for those in all Wildlife Management Districts, and until December 14th for those in WMDs 12, 13, 15-18, 20-26, and 29. Expanded archery season also continues until then.
ALL hunters are reminded that a muzzleloading license, in addition to your regular big-game hunting license, is needed to take advantage of the muzzleloading season. All other rules for deer hunting also apply.
