STATEWIDE – Moose hunting season started on Monday, there are some new changes.
The first, there are a few areas east of Bangor added to the September hunt.
Also, downeast district 27 and 28 are now reciprocals so anybody who has a permit in either of those zones can hunt that entire area.
Experts say this moose season should be a good one.
“Seems to be a little bit of an up-tick in the moose population far north where this hunting season is primarily, and so that’s good news for moose hunters this year,”Maine moose biologist Lee Kantar said.
Kantar says if any moose hunters need a refresher on the rules and regulations they can visit maine.gov/ifw for more information.
