Wildlife Management District 29
(Maine's Coastal Islands)

District 29 shall be that portion of the state located within the following bounds: Beginning at the point where Egypt Stream enters into Egypt Bay in Hancock; then following Egypt Bay and Sullivan Harbor in Hancock southerly to the Atlantic Ocean; then following the coast of Maine southwesterly to the Maine-New Hampshire border in Kittery. District 29 includes all coastal islands seaward of the first upstream bridge, which are not connected to the mainland at low tide, or by man-made structures.

Note: The Town of Islesboro will be open to archery hunting during the Expanded Archery season established for WMD 29.

Islands located in the towns of Franklin, Gouldsboro, Sorrento, Sullivan, and Winter Harbor are not included in WMD 29.

Islands that are served by an automobile causeway, including Verona, Deer Isle/Stonington, and Mount Desert Island are not considered part of WMD 29. However, islands surrounding these, which are not accessible by a causeway or bridge, are considered part of WMD 29.

WMD 29 is located on the Delorme Maine Atlas and Gazetteer Maps # 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 14, 15, 16, 23, and 24.

Important Note: The discharge of firearms and archery hunting equipment is prohibited by ordinance on islands located in the City of Portland and Long Island Plt. in Cumberland County. This eliminated the possibility of hunting deer in these towns at this time.Expanded Archery Map for WMD 29
