NEW LAW THAT REQUIRES AN ARCHERY LICENSE WHEN HUNTING WITH ARCHERY
EQUIPMENT IN 2017 AND WILL REQUIRE A BOW HUNTER EDUCATION COURSE
• As of January 1, 2017 the department will enforce the requirement that a hunter wishing to hunt with bow and
arrow hold a valid archery license.
• The law requires the archery hunters to successfully complete a bow hunter education course prior to
purchasing an archery license or show proof of having held an adult archery license in any year after 1979;
(Nonresidents who can show proof of having held a valid archery license in another state after 1979 or who can
show proof of completion of a bow hunter education course from another state will be able to purchase a
Maine archery license).
• Bow hunters who haven’t already done so are strongly encouraged to complete a bow hunter education course

Wildlife will be offering many of these courses throughout the State to accommodate hunters.
