##MAINE DEPARTMENT OF INLAND FISHERIES & WILDLIFE **284 State St., SHS 41, Augusta, ME 04333** *www.mefishwildlife.com Main Number: (207) 287-8000* AUGUSTA, Maine – Maine’s 2011 deer season resulted in a total harvest of 18,839 deer by resident and non-resident hunters. Although the winter of 2010-2011 was tough, especially mid-winter, snow disappeared rapidly and deer benefited from spring rains and a relatively early spring green up. Overwinter survival of fawns increased, giving a boost to yearlings available during the fall hunting season.
