Hunting Season Is Here - Cape Elizabeth Land Trust


Hunting Season Is Here

The expanded archery deer hunting season this year begins September 9 and runs until December 9, 2023. (Refer to the State website for season dates; Cape Elizabeth is in WMD #24.) All hunters must contact our office for permission. Please leave us a message at (207) 767-6054 or email
