There are other special permits and days that certain folks can tag a moose such as a Maine residents only day. This link Hunting Season Dates is a resource for anyone with questions on what permits are issued and also what times of year other hunts occur.

We wish best of luck to all of those folks who are looking to get their name drawn this year.
