Today is the first full day of firearms deer hunting season here in Maine, it will continue until Saturday November 30th. This past Saturday, residents of Maine got a head start on their out of state counter parts, beginning today everyone can participate.

Maine wildlife officials expect up to 26,000 deer to be tagged this season. Maine has an estimated 200,000 deer.

Back during the winters of 2008 and 2009, about a third of Maine’s deer herd was wiped out due to the extreme cold and deep snow pack.¬† Wildlife officials here now say that the population has grown again to pre-2008 levels.

Firearms season will be followed up by muzzeloader season beginning on Monday December 2nd.

Now is a good time to remind everyone that if you’re planning on being anywhere near the woods to wear something orange!
