Deer hunting reminders
Report your deer harvest. The easiest way to report a harvest is online using MassFishHunt, but you can also go to an official check station
Antlerless Deer Permits: If you applied for an ADP by the July 16th deadline, you still have to check to see if you were awarded a permit.
Surplus antlerless deer permits are still available for zones 13 and 14. All other zones are sold out.
- If you hunt deer outside of Massachusetts please note: It is illegal to import deer parts from states or provinces where Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) has been detected. Get more information about CWD.
Time to go fishing!
- 60,000 rainbow trout and 4,000 brown trout were stocked across Massachusetts this fall, go to Mass.gov/trout to find out where!
