The state of Maine offers a wide range of hunting and fishing opportunities. Maine is nearly as large as all the other New England states combined, with over 17 million acres of forested land, 6,000 lakes and ponds and 32,000 miles of rivers and streams.
Buying a license is an easy and effective way to support Maine’s fish and wildlife management efforts, especially this time of year, a license is the perfect gift for outdoor sporting enthusiasts! All proceeds from the sale of hunting and fishing licenses stay at the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife.
IFW also offers additional gift items in our online shop such as IFW logo apparel, The Maine Way cookbook, season passes to the Maine Wildlife Park, or the opportunity to support conservation efforts with the purchase of a Maine Birder Band or Heron Sticker.  To visit our online shop or to learn more about IFW programs, please visit www.mefishwildlife.com
