Great State Maps and Information for Hunters

Very interesting and informative maps of each state are available now, showing game animals and harvesting data.

Annabelle Carter Short, who writes for Minute Man Review, a site dedicated to protecting our second amendment rights, alerted me to this new information, in this message:

I’m writing to you because we have just published interactive wildlife hunting maps that show which animals you are permitted to hunt in each U.S. state and the most hunted animal for each state. Each map shows a different category of animal—big game animals, small game animals, waterfowl, and upland game birds.

You can access these maps here:

About George Smith

George stepped down at the end of 2010 after 18 years as the executive director of the Sportsman’s Alliance of Maine to write full time. He writes a weekly editorial page column in the Kennebec Journal and Waterville Morning Sentinel, a weekly travel column in those same newspapers (with his wife Linda), monthly columns in The Maine Sportsman magazine, two outdoor news blogs (one on his website,, and one on the website of the Bangor Daily News), and special columns for many publications and newsletters. Islandport Press published a book of George's favorite columns, "A Life Lived Outdoors" in 2014. In 2014, George also won a Maine Press Association award for writing the state's bet sports blog. In 2016, Down East Books published George's book, Maine Sporting Camps, and Islandport Press published George and his wife Linda's travel book, Take It From ME, about their favorite Maine inns and restaurants.
