Maine to issue 9 percent fewer moose hunting permits this year
The state's moose herd appears to have fared better this winter than last, but the number of permits will drop

Maine’s moose herd appears to have fared better this winter than last year, when widespread mortality caused by winter ticks led to a 25-percent decrease in moose-hunting permits.

As a result, the number of moose permits allocated this year will remain the same as recommended by state biologists in January: 2,815, to be distributed during a June 13 lottery in Bethel. That represents a 9 percent decrease from 2014, when 3,095 permits were allotted.
