Maine reducing deer hunting permits by 23 percent to protect herd
Wildlife officials say they want to be conservative in managing the state's whitetail deer herd, after two harsh winters.

Maine wildlife biologists say they are taking precautions to protect the state’s whitetail deer herd after a harsh winter by decreasing hunting permits by 23 percent from last year.

The state announced this week that it has begun accepting applications for its annual lottery of any-deer hunting permits. Maine will allot 28,770 permits for this fall’s hunt – down from 37,185 in 2014. It’s only the fourth time fewer than 30,000 any-deer permits will be allotted since the permit system started in 1986.
