Maine is giving out more than 66,000 of the permits, up from fewer than 46,000 last year. State officials say deer have been able to survive recent mild winters, and that allows for more hunting.

The firearms hunting season runs from Oct. 30 to Nov. 25 this year.

Maine’s Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife has more deer hunting information.
