If you're looking to bag the big one, Northern Maine is the place you want to be. With Maine's moose population estimated to be around 76,000 your chances are pretty good!

According to the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife, last year in the state hunters killed 2,937 moose out of a possible 3,725 permits issued.

Who's ready for some hunting? Did I mention that I like moose meat? Hint, hint...
