Expanded Archery Season on Deer- Maine 2005
Hunting- Our intent is to provide additional deer hunting opportunities in locations in which deer populations can withstand additional hunting pressure without negatively impacting other existing deer hunting opportunities or human safety. Accordingly, we have identified a number of areas in central and southern Maine which meet these criteria. They include Wildlife Management Districts 24 and 30, and other areas as described below. All are characterized by intensive residential development interspersed with small woodlots. Much of this area cannot be hunted with firearms due to municipal ordinances banning discharge of firearms.
A Cautionary Note: Nearly all land in the Expanded Archery Hunting Zone is privately owned. Some of it is not deer habitat. Parts of it remain unhuntable due to sanctuaries, municipal ordinances against archery discharge, or simply because individual landowners do not support hunting and/or trespass on their land. We strongly urge all hunters to obtain landowner permission during the expanded archery season. Pre-season scouting is essential to your success. Please hunt ethically. Your behavior while afield may well determine the future of these hunts.
Season takes place September 10 - December 10, 2005. Sundays are closed to deer hunting.
Restricted to designated areas only (see below).
Archery hunting only.
Hunters who have a valid archery license will be able to purchase multiple antlerless permits for $13.00 each, and one buck permit for $33.00. (Junior hunters 10 years of age or older and under 16 years of age may hunt during this season with their junior hunting license but must purchase the expanded archery permits.) Limit: One buck and/or multiple antlerless deer (with appropriate expanded archery permits).
Deer must be legally transported and registered as for other deer seasons. All other archery deer hunting laws apply. Refer to your Hunting Regulations Summary Booklet available from licensing agents or request a copy by sending email to the Department.
