It appears as though it has been a successful early part of the deer hunting season for many Bangor Daily News readers.
Today, we’re sharing some photos of hunters with their harvests.
The brother duo of Brayden Larrabee and Alex Larrabee of Deer Isle both filled their tags.
Brayden Larrabee, 10, shot a doe using his crossbow that was 116 pounds, live weight.
Not to be outdone, 9-year-old Alex Larrabee is shown with the 91-pound spikehorn he harvested with his rifle. Alex also cashed in on an any-deer bonus permit by taking a 90-pound doe using a crossbow.
Logan Grant of Thorndike filled two tags with back-to-back shots.
A group of three deer came into view, providing Grant with the opportunity to attempt shooting two of them as she had an any-deer permit and a bonus any-deer tag.
Grant fired twice but, after not finding one of them initially, feared she must have missed on the first shot.
Two hours later her husband, Tanner Grant, located the deer that had been unaccounted for.
It was one day and done for Darcy Michaud of Pittsfield this season.
She’s standing over the 125-pound crotch horn deer she shot on Oct. 30 in St. Albans.
Mikey Clough of Ellsworth took care of business during opening week. The 9-year-old bagged his second career deer when he tagged out with a doe.
