AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) — Maine's wildlife biologists are considering expanding the number of deer hunting permits in the state to an all-time record.

Maine uses “any deer” permits to control its large deer herd. The permits allow hunters to harvest deer of either sex. Biologists have proposed an increase of more than 60% that would bring the permit total close to 110,000.

It's more than 25,000 more of the permits than the state has ever issued in a single year, the Bangor Daily News reported. The deer hunting season takes place every fall.

The state is slated to take public comments on the proposal starting later this month, and an advisory council could take it up again in the summer.

State deer biologist Nathan Bieber said the higher permit total reflects a high rate of deer survival over a fairly mild winter. The state has also fallen short of its doe harvest goals in recent years, he said.
