For fans of Maine deer!

 This comes from the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife today!  Check it out, sounds like two fun ways to get involved! 

1.  Join us for an informative virtual presentation by Maine's White-tailed Deer Biologist Nathan Bieber as he discusses the history of deer management, the status of Maine's deer herd, and the current strategies used to manage deer in Maine.

Streaming live on YouTube Tuesday, July 27 at 6pm. The presentation will be recorded and available at the same link:


2.  Enjoy watching deer?

Become a citizen scientist for the Maine Deer Spy project! Volunteers are needed across the state and everyone can participate.


Participating is easy! When you see deer between August 1 and September 30,  all you need to do is make simple observations:

  • Location
  • Date and time
  • The number of does (adult female deer with no antlers), bucks (deer with antlers), and/or fawns (young deer).

You can submit data online or by postal mail. Data recording instructions and examples of how to correctly record data are available online at
