Will Maine ever regain the nonresident hunters it lost over the last decade? Realistically, probably not. But credit for trying goes to the members of a legislatively-authorized Nonresident Hunter Task Force whose report – including an extensive list of recommendations – will be presented on January 23 to the legislature’s Inland Fisheries and Wildlife Committee.
The presentation is scheduled soon after public hearings on three bills, scheduled for 10 am, are completed. You can listen to the presentation online at the legislature’s website. I am told that the report eventually may be posted on DIF&W’s website. I will be there to post a report on the presentation.
