AUGUSTA, Maine -- Since hitting a low point in 1997, hunting licenses sales in Maine have been on an upward climb, reversing a trend that saw hunting license sales decrease for five years.
The numbers below detail license sales for the past eleven years:
1990 - 217,543
"Outdoor introductory programs such as Becoming an Outdoorswoman, Hooked on Fishing, and Youth Field Days that target non-traditional license holders have become an important tool in reversing the license sale decline," said Don Kleiner, Director of Information and Education for the Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife. "Increased marketing efforts both in state and throughout the northeast also play a significant part in increasing license sales."
