2010 hunting and fishing licenses now available

15 years ago

    AUGUSTA – Maine 2010 hunting and fishing licenses now are available for purchase just in time for holiday gift giving.
    Licenses are available using MOSES, the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife’s online licensing system, at https://www.informe.org/moses/. This system, too, is used at more than 300 licensing agents statewide.
    With MOSES, hunters and anglers can purchase licenses at any time of the day or night and print their licenses from their home or office computer in just minutes. It’s also easier to print duplicate licenses, and by clicking on “express user” the system will maintain your information for future license purchases.
    Any resident or non-resident sportsperson looking to hunt or fish in Maine can use MOSES. This online service in not available for individuals that need to obtain a complimentary, lifetime or military license, or for those interested individuals from countries other than the United States or Canada.
    All hunters and anglers will notice an increase in license fees this year. For resident anglers and hunters, most licenses are increasing by $4. The price increase, approved by the Maine Legislature, helps the department cover the costs of fish and wildlife resource management.
    The best value for residents is a hunt-fish combo license, which increased by $4. If you hunt and fish, buying a combo license instead of each license separately saves $4.
    The Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife primarily is funded from the sales of licenses and registrations. This year, the department will receive little revenue from the state’s general fund.   
    All proceeds from the sale of licenses and registrations stay within the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife. None of the money is used to support other state agencies.
