FRYEBURG – The Fryeburg Fish and Game Association will meet at 7 p.m. Monday, Oct. 11 at the Fryeburg Fire Station on Main Street.

George Smith, Sportsman’s Alliance of Maine executive director, will discuss the referendum calling for an end to bear baiting, taking of bears by trapping and bear hunting with hounds. He will also discuss the financial situation of the state’s Inland Fish and Wildlife Department, which will have a $7 million deficit.
