Maine's 2017 deer season for firearm hunters begins Saturday and runs through Nov. 25, followed by muzzleloader season, which ends Dec. 2. The state has allotted 66,050 any-deer permits this year, the highest number since 2007. It's a 130 percent increase from two years ago, when 28,770 permits were issued. Lee Kantar, a biologist with the Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife, said this year's boost in permits is needed to achieve a desired doe harvest of 7,000. Last year, 5,176 does were harvested after a permit allotment of 45,625; in 2015, 4,486 does were harvested. Kanter said white-tails can breed at a year old - and it's common for healthy does to have twins. The severity of winter plays a critical role in the herd's population. "The bottom line is we've had a series of mild winters," said Kantar, who served as the state deer biologist from 2005 to 2013. "When you have mild winters, (the deer) population can really take off." Wildlife Division Director Judy Camuso estimated that the state's deer herd at 240,000 this summer. That's up from an estimated 199,000 in 2008.
