Maine’s 2007 deer-hunting season ended Saturday
for hunters using firearms.
But hunting continues for muzzle-loaders and archers in
designated areas after the Sunday break.
The firearms season followed a 2006 season that finished with a
higher tally than biologists had predicted.
The state game department says hunters killed nearly 30,000 deer
last season, a few hundred more than the pre-season prediction and
also above the 20-year average.
No figures are available yet for the 2007 season.
