Lucky hunters who are selected for any deer permits will be announced next week.

It's going to be another big season for any deer permits. The 2021 Maine any deer permit drawing will be held Friday, September 10. The privilege allows the permittee to hunt antlerless deer, or bucks with antlers less than three inches in length.

The number of permits is up 44,020 from last year, when 109,890 permits were issued. 68,145 permits were issued in 2019.

If you're selected, you need to write down your corresponding any deer permit number. It's suggested you keep that number with your hunting license so it's readily available when needed at a tagging station. The Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife no longer mails transportation tags or physical any deer permits.
