AUGUSTA, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Moose hunting season starts Monday in Northern and eastern Maine.

A record number of hunting permits have been granted this year in general, after a record season for moose hunters last year.

The northern part of the state has seen a higher moose population, so more permits are granted up there, but there are actually less granted in other parts of the state based on a lower population of moose.

Maine's moose population is estimated at under 70-thousand animals.  This week, there are 950 hunters with permits.
