Deer are big business

For more than 100 years Maine has been the deer hunter's destination spot for those who want to hunt big deer in the North Woods. Although a decline in deer numbers in Maine, especially in the big woods, has resulted in fewer nonresident deer hunters flocking to the Pine Tree State, deer hunting by residents and nonresidents alike is still big business.

A recently released economic impact study and survey done in 2013 by Southwick Associates, for the Maine state tourism department, really drives home this point. Of all the different game species hunted in Maine, deer remain the big favorite.
