Maine Drops to 25th Ranking in Boone & Crockett Trophy Whitetail Ranking

*Editor’s Note* Thank you to contributor Richard Paradis for compiling this information.

Maine is one of those states that refuses to admit, at least openly, that they can’t get hunters to come to Maine from out of state to hunt whitetail deer, because there are few deer left to hunt and that directly relates to the precipitous drop in the reporting of trophy deer taken from and reported to Boone and Crockett.

The state of Maine dropped from a ranking of 11th to 25th.
