The State Of Maine Would Like To Know When You See Deer
It's not uncommon in our glorious state to see deer grazing in a field when you're cruising up I-95. Sometimes they might even show up in the backyard. Maybe you've seen them walking across your street just before you get to the driveway.
Hopefully you haven't had any jump into the driver's side front of your car like a member of my family recently experienced. The car didn't hit the deer. The deer hit car. Poor buddy.
So know that you think about it, you probably see deer more than you realize. Or perhaps you fancy yourself as a deer watcher.
How would you like to make your fascination with deer an official service for the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife?
According to their Facebook page starting July 20, they would like folks to "Become a citizen scientist for the Maine Deer Spy pilot project!"
From the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife:
"This project, Maine Deer Spy, allows deer and wildlife enthusiasts as well as Department staff around the state to record and report their deer sightings in a way that feeds right back into Maine’s deer management."
