Do you need to take an outdoor safety course to obtain your license for firearms, archery, crossbow, or trapping?
Maine law requires completion to obtain your adult license unless you have previously done so or have held an adult license.
These courses are made available in your area by volunteer instructors certified by the Department of Inland Fisheries & Wildlife. Pre-registration is requested and/or required. Courses will include 6 to 12 hours of instruction dependent on the subject. Sponsors include school districts, sports clubs, civic groups, and others. Courses will be scheduled based on instructor availability.
For information on becoming a Volunteer Instructor, contact your local Regional Safety Coordinator or the Recreational Safety Division Office at (207) 287-5220. Call to find out who your local Regional Safety Coordinator is, or go on our website.
