AUGUSTA, Maine — Maine’s Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife is opening the Marsh Island area in Old Town and Orono to archery hunting for white-tailed deer during this year’s season.
The plan approved by the department’s Advisory Council opens the area during any hunting season that allows the use of a bow and arrow, including the expanded archery season. University of Maine lands will remain closed to any hunting.
The expanded archery season begins Sept. 10 and runs through Dec. 10.
A controlled archery hunt first took place on Marsh Island in 2008.
