Okay, here’s some more whine! If Maine deer hunters shoot 20,000 deer a season, and it takes the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife (MDIFW) 6 months (180 days) to count the registered deer and then tell the public, then MDIFW counts 111.111 deer a day.

In comparison, Wisconsin’s gun deer season just ended, with a harvest reported of 79,429 deer and it was reported to the press in three days. Officials there counted 26,476 deer a day. Maine should be able to count the entire harvest in one day!

Maine: Life in the Slow Lane!
