Deadline to apply for the 2017 any-deer permit lottery is August 15.

Press Release from the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife:

Deadline reminder to those who wish to apply for 2017 any-deer (antlerless) permit lottery!

Applications will be accepted online until 11:59 p.m. on August 15, 2017.

It is free to apply for the any-deer permit lottery. The drawing will be held on September 8, 2017 and results will be posted on the Department’s website.

Applicants are reminded that the Department does not mail the any-deer, bonus antlerless deer, or superpack antlerless deer permits/transportation tags. Instead, permit winners will need to record their permit number that can be found online after the drawing, and report the permit number to the registration station when tagging their deer.

The deadline to apply for the 2017 Maine Moose Permit Lottery is fast approaching!

Applicants are awarded bonus points for each consecutive year that they have applied for the lottery since 1998 without being selected and each bonus point gives the applicant an additional chance in the drawing.

Bonus points are earned at the rate of one per year for years one to five, two per year for years six to 10, three per year for years 11 to 15 and 10 per year for years 16 and beyond.

Since 2011, applicants can skip a year and not lose their bonus points. So if they applied in 2015 but not in 2016, they still have their points available if they apply in 2017.


The moose permit drawing will take place on June 17, 2017 at Caribou Parks and Recreation.
