Moose Hunting Permit

Maine’s moose hunt is a “permit only” hunt. Information on this hunt is contained in a separate publication. 2,740 permits were issued for the 2015 moose hunt. Each permittee may select a subpermittee to hunt with them. Applications are available by January 31. A person selected to receive a moose permit may not then purchase an apprenticeship license to satisfy the licensing requirement. The bag limit is one moose per year, by either permittee or subpermittee.

Permits for 70 years old and older

A resident 70 years of age or older with 30 points or more in the moose lottery system who applies for a moose permit is guaranteed a permit.

Permits for sporting camp owners

In any year when moose permit numbers exceed 3,140 persons who operate a sporting camp and meet specific requirements defined in the law may apply for a moose permit through a chance drawing which is separate from the regular moose lottery.
