AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - Maine’s winter hunting seasons are getting into full swing as the fall big game hunts wrap up.

Tuesday marks the first day of the bobcat hunting season, which runs until Feb. 14. Seasons have also already begun for gray squirrels, snowshoe hares, raccoons and other small game animals. Birds including ruffed grouse, bobwhite quail and pheasant are also in season until the end of December.

The firearms season for bear, deer and moose ended on Nov. 28. It’s still possible to take deer via archery or muzzleloaders until Dec. 12. Authorities suggest hunters check regulations before hunting.
