2016 Fishing, Hunting, & Trapping Season Dates

December 1: 2017 Hunting, Fishing, and Trapping Licenses Become Available – Get your license through MassFishHunt, at a license vendor location, or at a MassWildlife office. During December, it is possible to purchase either a 2016 or a 2017 license; therefore, license buyers should be careful selecting the year when making a purchase. Minors 15-17 years of age may not purchase hunting or sporting licenses online and must have certain documentation in their possession when making a license purchase at a MassWildlife office or other license vendor locations. Anyone 15 or older needs a license in order to fish in freshwater or to hunt. Freshwater fishing licenses for minors 15-17 are free and can obtained online. Learn more about license purchasing requirements.
