AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - Maine’s big game hunting seasons are entering their final two weeks for 2017.

The main hunting seasons for deer, bear and moose all end on Nov. 25. The state offered 60 fewer permits for moose this year, but far more for deer.

Maine gave out more than 66,000 of the “any deer” permits, up from fewer than 46,000 last year. Those permits allow hunters to harvest deer of either sex.

The archery season for deer lasts until Dec. 9. There’s also a season for people who hunt deer with muzzleloaders that lasts until Dec. 9.

The moose hunt is currently limited to two wildlife management districts in southwestern Maine and the Belgrade Lakes region. The bear hunt’s mostly over because most hunters use bait and bait season ended Sept. 23.
