    Gallery: As hunting season ramps up, state officials broaden testing for ‘forever chemicals’ in fish and wildlife - Rich Abrahamson/Morning Sentinel | of | Share this photo

    Deer hunter Lucas Glidden, 8, of Frankfort, bites into a piece of ham Saturday as he shares breakfast with his grandfather, Jamie Whitcomb of Unity, left, during the annual Austin J. Grant Memorial Hunters Breakfast at the Snowduster’s Clubhouse in Unity. The pair said they saw a deer running but were unable to take a shot during their early morning hunt. This year the fundraising breakfast will support Gay Leighton, a widow and retired mail carrier who was recently diagnosed with cancer. In addition, proceeds will be used to fund a local driver’s ed student, pay an elderly resident’s taxes and buy heating oil for a senior citizen. The first day of deer hunting season for Maine residents (with firearms) began Saturday amid several earlier state advisories about fish and game, including deer, being contaminated by PFAS chemicals.
