In Maine, hunters and trappers must attend approved training courses specific to the license or permit type they wish to purchase. By state law, anyone planning to buy a hunting license, archery hunting license, crossbow permit, 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.
