The Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife has direct responsibility for freshwater fish and wildlife in the state. For the Department to properly administer its program and funds, it requires knowledge of the needs and desires of the citizenry it serves. With such information, the Department can better fulfill the governmental mandate that public funds be put to their highest and best use.
This bulletin reports some of the findings of a recent survey of residents and non-residents who purchased a 1976 Maine hunting license. It summarizes important characteristics of this group so that wildlife managers may better understand the attitudes and preferences of the state's hunters and, therefore, more effectively carry out the Department's mandate.
