This website is an invaluable resource for those resident in Maine and for those thinking of visiting the state. It lists all hunting seasons, which animals are open to hunting and some of the best places to hunt.

Information on safety courses, state laws, wildlife plans, season quotas, and daily bag limits, it’s all here on this excellent website.

iFish Maine App
This app, which is easily downloaded to a phone or tablet, gives great advice on fishing in Maine.

An extra is a listing of license and state requirements, allowing the user to access appropriate forms via live links.

The HUNT App
This mobile app gives real-time information on land boundaries between private and state owned land. In Maine, as in other states, permission is needed to hunt on private land. The app uses the GPS service on a phone to determines where a hunter is and what land on which they are hunting. It also lists game available to hunt in the area, allows the user to store waypoints and photographs for easier identification of hunting spots. It can also show landowner names so a hunter can know who they have to seek permission from to hunt on their land.

The HuntSoft App
This app allows you to store all your information from a hunt – from kills, good spots, tracks, and trails –and build a database for further use. The online community section gives users the chance to share their data and benefits all hunters in the state. Using all the data collected, the app can issue reports and predictions for future hunts which can save the user many wasted hours on the trails.
