It’s open season on hunting, fishing licenses in Maine

January 5, 2019

AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) — Maine wildlife managers say licenses for the state’s hunting and fishing seasons are available for purchase all over the state.

Maine sells its hunting and fishing permits online and at more than 800 licensing agents around the state. The most popular hunting seasons include the hunts for deer, moose and bear, all of which take place in the fall.

Hunting has a long tradition in Maine, which has more than 17 million acres of forest and 32,000 miles of rivers and streams. The state promotes outdoors licenses as a way to support fish and wildlife management efforts, as the state relies in part on licensing fees to support those projects.
