Please be aware that the expanded archery deer hunting season runs from September 12th through December 12th this year. (Refer to the State website for other season dates.)

For both trail users and hunters, please consider wearing blaze orange or other high-visibility gear during hunting season! Hunting accidents happen every year – stay visible, stay safe, and be respectful to everyone you encounter on the trails.

All hunters must contact our office for permission. Please leave us a message at (207) 767-6054 or email We need to know how many people are out there and want to be able to answer questions and communicate all relevant and important information about hunting on our conserved lands.


  • Due to Town ordinance, hunting with a firearm is not permitted
  • Tree stands must be removed daily
  • Stay 300 ft away from trails and residences
  • Follow all state and town laws and regulations
