Hunting & Fishing License

How to Purchase
We can start selling the next year's hunting and fishing licenses on December 1. You can also purchase them online. We sell to any Maine resident, nonresident, or alien. Please bring your driver's license with you.

Purchasing for Others
You may purchase licenses here for others. Many purchase licenses for gifts on occasions such as Christmas or birthdays. If this is the first time for our municipality to issue a license to someone (other than a fish or junior hunt license) we must see proof of either a hunter safety card or a license issued from another municipality or state.

Lifetime Licenses
Complimentary over-70 licenses are no longer available. However, if you hold a complimentary over-70 license you are grandfathered in as long as you continue to keep Maine as your legal residence. 

The complimentary licenses have been replaced with a resident over-70 lifetime license. You may purchase the license anytime during the calendar year you will turn 70. The fee is $8. Once purchased, a resident lifetime license is valid for the life of the holder no matter where they live. The old style license was not valid if you moved out of the State of Maine.  

An over-70 license now automatically includes (for each new year) the authority for:
  • Muzzle loading
  • Migratory water fowl (you still need a federal stamp)
  • Pheasant
  • Spring turkey permit
  • Bear
  • Coyote night hunt
  • Fall turkey permit
You do not need to come in each year to get these anymore. 

Saftey Classes
The Town Clerk's Office tries to offer a Hunter Safety Class twice a year, usually in April and September. The cost is $5 per person for ages 10 and up. It is a 2 day course that runs from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Please contact the Town Clerk's Office for more information and sign up.

This springs Safety Course will be on April 5 and April 12, 2014 at the Windham Public Library from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and you must attend both days to receive your certificate.  Contact us to sign-up.
