NOTE: In Region A, there are two wildlife sanctuaries that overlap with a portion of Wildlife Management Area land.  While almost all Wildlife Management Areas [WMAs] allow hunting and trapping (please see the exceptions below), Sanctuaries most often do not allow hunting or trapping.  Hunting and trapping within the portion of WMAs covered by Wildlife Sanctuaries are not open to hunting or trapping.  In Region A, the following apply:

  1. The Limington, Hollis and Waterboro Sanctuary overlaps with part of the Killick Pond WMA land and the Little Ossipee River WMA land.
  2. The Standish Sanctuary overlaps with part of the Steeps Falls Wildlife Management Area.

In both sanctuaries mentioned above, a loaded firearm is not allowed on the roads that create the boundaries of the sanctuaries or the Maine Central Railroad right-of-way that bounds the Standish Game Sanctuary.

For more information on Sanctuary boundaries please view Title 12 on the Maine Legislature website.
