You need a valid hunting or sporting license to apply for an Antlerless Deer Permit in Massachusetts.
You can apply for an Antlerless Deer Permit through the MassFishHunt online system. The deadline to apply is July 16th. You can only submit one application.
If you don't want to apply online through MassFishHunt, you can apply in person at a MassWildlife office or a licence agent location. The deadline to apply is July 16th.
If you apply for an Antlerless Deer Permit by the July 16th deadline, you still must check to see if you have been awarded the right to purchase the permit. The award period begins August 1st at 8 a.m. and ends on December 31st. Your odds of obtaining a permit are the same regardless of when you check your permit status. You can check the status of your permit through MassFishHunt, or by visiting a MassWildlife office or license agent location.
Starting in October, surplus Antlerless Deer Permits will be available for sale, until they have all sold out in each Wildlife Management Zone. You can purchase a surplus permit through MassFishHunt, at authorized license vendor locations, or at a MassWildlife office.
Antlerless Deer: Any deer without antlers or any deer with both antlers less than 3 inches long measured on a straight line form the center of the front base of the antler burr to the tip.
