AUGUSTA, Maine — Maine’s fall deer hunt gets started for the year later this week.
Maine allows hunters to pursue deer with archery, crossbows, muzzleloaders, and rifles during separate parts of the season.
The “expanded archery” season begins on Saturday, September 11, and runs to December 11. The expanded archery season allows hunters to pursue deer in limited parts of the state.
The statewide archery and crossbow season takes place in October.
Maine hunting regulators plan to issue more than 150,000 deer permits this year.
