AUGUSTA, Maine — Much of northern Maine will get a third week of moose hunting next year.

The Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife has decided that four moose-hunting districts in northern Maine that typically get two weeks of hunting will get a third week next year.

The department’s advisory council initially set the third week in October as the additional week in those districts. Commissioner Roland Martin is now asking that the extra week be scheduled for early November instead.

The council will hold a public meeting Tuesday to discuss and possibly make the change.
