A Quick Peek Into Maine's Strategic Management Plans For Deer, Bear and Moose

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The other day I received an e-mail from Mark Latti of the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife. I finally took the time this morning to read it over. What great information he sent along.

Back in 2001 the state of Maine instituted its latest management plan for deer, bear and moose. This plan remains in effect until 2017 but along the way certain adjustments need to be made to achieve the long-term goals within the management plan. Each year around October, the department issues a report that summarizes any changes in strategies and how the working plans are producing desired effects.

What Mark sent me was a sneak peek look into what will be in that report in October about deer, bear and moose. It also contains an overview of what should be expected for upcoming season harvests for hunters.

If you are interested in the management strategies for three of Maine’s big game animals, I would highly recommend the read. You can find it posted here at Maine Hunting Today.
