Special Landowner Drawing - Maine
Hunting- Any private landowner is eligible for the landowner permit drawing if the person owns a particular piece of land that is: 25 or more contiguous acres in size; is agricultural, forested or undeveloped land; and open to hunting, including hunting by permission. Any dependent living in the household of a qualifying landowner is eligible. Applicant's hunting privilege cannot be under revocation.
Any shareholder in a Chapter S Corporation is eligible for the landowner permit drawing if the corporation's principle business is forestry or agriculture and owns a particular piece of land that is: 25 or more contiguous acres in size, is agricultural or undeveloped land; and open to hunting including hunting by permission. Dependents of shareholders are not eligible.
Qualifying landowners must complete the landowner permit application and the standard Any-Deer permit application (both included on the same application form - see exceptions above). The location of the qualifying property must be provided (tax map and lot number).
You do not have to apply in the same district where the 25+ acre parcel of land is located if you apply with a regular hunting license. The district choice on your application applies to both drawings.
You will automatically be included in the general permit drawing if you are unsuccessful in the special landowner drawing.
Maine resident landowners may hunt without a license on their own land if they live on that particular piece of land, the piece of land exceeds 10 acres in size, and the land is used exclusively for agricultural purposes. A landowner who's hunting privilege is under revocation is not eligible to receive an any-deer permit. Landowners may enter the drawing by submitting a signed, landowner affidavit form with their application. Landowner affidavits are mailed to all landowners who applied with one the previous year.
Landowners may enter the drawing by submitting a signed, landowner affidavit form with their any-deer permit application. If you would like to receive a landowner affidavit form by mail, you may request one by sending e-mail to the Department. An unlicensed resident landowner may apply for an Any-Deer permit or Bonus Deer permit only in the district where his or her qualifying land is located. If an unlicensed landowner is selected to receive a permit, the permit is valid only on the qualifying land, even if a hunting license is later acquired. In order for a permit to be valid anywhere in a district, a hunting license must be acquired prior to application and that license number used on the application.
