View Full Version : Any Maine Hunters...
Any Maine Hunters know whether or not the regular big game tags allow bear hunting as well this year. They used to look different but I just got my deer transportation tag (and recieved two that say deer and bear transportation tag.) Last few years there was a tag specifically for bear, this year they sent me a license invoice that has deer checked off, but doesnt have bear checked. I am wondering if this transportation tag is all i need or if I need a bear tag as well. Cant get through to there office.
here's a little from the Maine Dept. of Fish & Wildlife:
OTHER BEAR HUNTING PROVISIONS
Bear Hunting Permit: Outside of the firearms season on deer, a special bear hunting permit (in addition to a hunting license) is required to hunt for bear. During the firearms season on deer, a person may legally take a bear by virtue of a regular hunting license. The fee for a bear hunting permit is $5.00* for residents and $15.00* for non-residents and aliens. The special permit is not required whentrapping for bear. (*Plus agent fee.)

Thanks for the info. I was scratching my head when my tags came in.
