Deer harvest second highest in the past six years

AROOSTOOK COUNTY, Maine - Deer hunters in Maine harvested 22,490 deer in 2014, the second-highest total in the past six years.

“Hunters had an unusual year with heavy snow hitting much of the state on opening weekend, and then again during Thanksgiving,” said deer biologist Kyle Ravana, according to a press release issued by Maine Department of Inland Fisheries & Wildlife on May 15. “Those are always two of the busiest weekends of the year for hunters, and it gave many hunters the chance to track and harvest a deer.”

Maine’s November firearms season for deer attracts the most hunters and accounts for most of the deer harvest (18,510). Maine’s deer season starts in early September with expanded archery and ends with muzzleloader season in mid-December, providing hunters with more than 80 days.
