Maine’s Any-Deer Permits are issued through a special lottery drawing.
To find out if you were selected to receive a 2017 permit (Any-Deer, Landowner, Any-Deer or Superpack Antlerless Deer, or Bonus), select the first letter of your last name.
Results are shown in the following format: Name/Year of Birth, Legal Residence (Town, State), WMD-Permit Type, Permit Number.
J = Junior Any-Deer Permit
L = Landowner Any-Deer Permit
R = Regular Any-Deer Permit for Residents and Non-Residents
S = Superpack Antlerless Deer Permit
Please note, the first two digits of your Any Deer Permit Number/Superpack Permit Number is the Wildlife Management District (WMD) you were selected for, ie., 23R000000 is for WMD23.
If you were selected to receive a Bonus Permit, the WMD of the Bonus Permit will be indicated. There is a $12 fee for a Bonus Permit. For more information on paying for your Bonus Permit, please see Bonus Permit Information.
The Department will no longer be mailing the permits or transportation tags. Instead, permit winners will need to record their permit number and report the permit number to the registration station when tagging their deer. The Department suggests that permit winners write down their permit number and keep the number with their hunting license so it is readily available when needed at the registration station.
