Have You Been Chosen for an Antlerless Deer Permit?

The results of the antlerless permit lottery have been released by The Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife.

Those chosen have until September 12 to claim their permits and pay the $14 fee.

Check for the permit results here.

From the Department of Inland Fisheries & Wildlife:

A licensed hunter with an antlerless deer permit can harvest an antlerless deer in the designated district and an antlered deer statewide. Antlerless deer permits may be acquired through the lottery, and any remaining permits will be available for purchase on the MDIFW website.

There is no fee to apply to the antlerless deer permit lottery. After the lottery drawing, successful applicants must claim and purchase the permit for $12 (plus $2 agent fee).

Proceeds from the antlerless deer permit fee will help fund the purchase and management of deer wintering areas (DWAs), primarily in northern Maine. Deer wintering areas are a critical habitat for white-tailed deer living at the northern end of their range.

Extra permits will be available on a first come, first served basis starting in late September HERE.
