BANGOR – Hunters are gearing up for the start of the September moosehunt on Monday.
For the next week most of Northern Maine is open to anyone with a permit. Just over 28,000 names were drawn in June for the 2015 season.
Wildlife officials want hunters to be mindful of warmer temperatures next week.
“When temperatures are above 50 degrees, time is of the essence. So there’s a big tradition of Maine for people to bring back the whole moose to a station and get it weighed and all of that, but what’s more critical after you’ve taken all the photos is to get that thing cut up and take care of meat.” Lee Kantar, Moose Biologist, State of Maine
The season will continue in over the next couple of weeks in wildlife districts around the state. Exact dates and locations can be found HERE.
