Maine law requires completion to obtain your adult license unless you have previously done so or have held an adult license.
Hunters and trappers in Maine must attend training courses specific to the license type they wish to purchase. By state law, anyone planning to buy a basic hunting license, archery license, crossbow license, or trapping license, must complete the respective hunter, archery, crossbow, or trapper education course. Individuals may purchase each of these licenses by showing a certificate of completion from the appropriate course, or a previously issued license of the same type.
If you would like to refresh your knowledge of safe and responsible hunting, then taking a hunter education course is a great idea.
