PRESQUE ISLE, Maine (AP) - Maine’s annual moose hunt is returning to the far northern part of the state for the last time this year.

This year’s moose hunt is broken up into four sessions in different parts of the state. A portion of the hunt centered in the far north begins on Monday and ends Saturday.

The longest stretch of the moose hunt is centered in southern, central and coastal Maine and it runs from Halloween to Nov. 26. Maine’s “resident only” moose hunting day also takes place in those parts of the state and is set for Saturday.

The state gave out 2,140 moose hunting permits this year. Nearly 49,000 hunters entered the lottery.

The state allotted 675 fewer permits than last year.
