Lawmakers reject bear, beaver bills

by Will Tuell

Lawmakers on the Legislature’s Inland Fisheries and Wildlife Committee rejected a proposal from Rep. Ken “Bucket” Davis (R-East Machias) to establish separate times bear hunters can hunt over bait or with dogs during the fall and a proposal from Sen. Marianne Moore (R-Calais) giving landowners, municipal officials, and those preserving recreational trails more latitude in dealing with nuisance beaver. Both bills were unanimously voted down by the 13-member committee.
