Sustainable forestry
8.3 million acres statewide are certified as sustainably managed by independent auditors --that’s about 50 percent of Maine’s working forest.

Is it still a deer yard if there are no deer?

Gerry Lavigne, Maine’s state deer biologist for three decades, discusses areas, especially in northern Maine, where there is deer habitat, but no deer. For more of Lavigne’s views on the Maine deer herd visit the Sportsman’s Alliance of Maine’s Deer Recovery section or read:  Northern Maine deer ecology

Other information: The Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife presented the its Plan to Increase Maine’s Northern, Eastern and Western Deer Herd, including white tailed deer population goals and efforts to create a five-year benchmarking system on Jan. 25th, 2012.
