Maine’s Any-Deer Permits are issued through a special lottery drawing.
To find out if you were selected to receive a permit (Junior Any-Deer, Landowner Any-Deer, Regular Any-Deer, Superpack Antlerless Deer, or Bonus Antlerless Deer), select the first letter of your last name.
Results are shown in the following format: Name, Mailing Residence (Town, State), 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
RB = Bonus Antlerless Deer Permit
Please note, the first two digits of your Any-Deer Permit Number/Superpack Permit Number/Bonus Permit Number is the Wildlife Management District (WMD) you were selected for. For example 23R000000 is for WMD 23.
If you were selected to receive a Bonus Permit, please see Bonus Permit Information for more 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.
