AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - Maine’s deer season is entering into its final few days with hunting limited to archery and the use of muzzleloaders.

The muzzleloader season is only taking place in 14 wildlife management districts in southern, central and coastal Maine. It ends Dec. 12.

The archery season also ends that day. Hunting deer with bows and arrows is limited to certain areas around Maine cities as part of the annual “expanded archery” program.

The firearms season ended on Nov. 28. The state cut back deer hunting permits this year because of high deer mortality last winter.
