AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - Maine’s annual season for deer hunters who pursue their quarry with muzzleloading firearms is underway.

Muzzleloaders are firearms that are loaded from the end of the gun barrel. The state has a special season for hunters who use muzzleloaders to pursue deer, and it began on Monday and runs until Dec. 10.

The season is open in the entire state until Dec. 3 and in a handful of wildlife management districts from Dec. 5 to Dec. 10. Hunters are advised to consult with state authorities about rules before hunting.
