    The final and longest stretch of Maine's moose hunt is about to get underway.

    The session begins on Monday and lasts until Nov. 28. It is limited to certain wildlife management districts in southern, central and coastal Maine.

    Another session also begins Monday and ends Nov. 7 and is limited to parts of northern Maine. State officials say hunters should consult with authorities before hunting. Hunters are limited to one moose per year.

    Previous moose hunting sessions took place in September and October.

    The Maine Department of Inland Fisheries & Wildlife issued 2,740 moose permits this year - the fewest permits in 12 years. Biologists say parasites have culled the moose population in recent years.
