Maine’s Early Deer Harvest Numbers? Crickets…..

A friend sent me this information and I thank him. Here we have portions of reports across parts of the United States where early deer hunting harvest information is made available to anyone interested. Check these out:

New Hampshire Deer Hunting Report





And in Maine, where historically it takes 4-6 months for hunters to get any information about deer harvest…….Well, you guessed it:


And if it isn’t embarrassing enough that they can’t manage to inform people about what’s going on during the deer hunting season, I’ve just learned that the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife recently modified last year’s deer harvest report because “some information from tagging stations just arrived.”

Are you kidding me? Maine must be the most isolated state in the world. We live in a world of instant information and the best we can do is to receive deer hunting harvest numbers nearly one year after the event? WOW!
