Freshwater fishing licenses and recreational saltwater permits
Whether you print your license or permit or have it stored on your mobile device, you must always have a current version with you when fishing in Massachusetts.

Hunting licenses and permits
You must have your license, along with any required permits and stamps while hunting. You can either show a paper copy or display an image of your license on your mobile device. You must still comply with all tagging requirements. If a tag is required, as it is for hunting deer, bear, and turkey, hunters must carry a paper copy of the tag attached to the appropriate documentation (i.e. license or permit).
