If you’re planning to apply for a 2016 any-deer (antlerless) permit lottery with the paper application, we remind you that the deadline is quickly approaching!

Paper applications must be submitted in person or by mail no later than 5 p.m. onJuly 29, 2016.

Applications will be accepted online until 11:59 p.m. on August 15, 2016.  To apply online or to print a paper application, visit www.mefishwildlife.com

It is free to apply for the any-deer permit lottery. The drawing will be held on September 9, 2016 and results will be posted on the Department’s website.

We also remind you that the Department does not mail the any-deer, bonus antlerless deer, or superpack antlerless deer permits/transportation tags. Instead, permit winners 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 a deer.
