AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - More than 28,000 Maine hunters won a lottery for the right to hunt deer this fall.

The lottery drawing for the state’s 28,770 “any deer” permits took place Wednesday. The state cut the number of permits down from 37,185 permits last year.

The state uses the “any deer” permits to manage the deer population by controlling the harvest of females.

Youth Deer Hunting Day is on Oct. 24. The main firearms season for deer runs from Nov. 2 to Nov. 28. There is also an expanded archery season that lasts from Sept. 12 to Dec. 12 and a muzzleloader season from Nov. 30 to Dec. 12.
