1. What is a cookie and how do I enable them?

Cookies are small text files that a web server may ask your web browser to store, and to send back to the web server when needed. Cookies allow us to distinguish between different users, and to use information provided at one stage of an application at a later time (for instance, items placed in a 'shopping cart' might need to be displayed on a later 'check-out' screen). When we use cookies in this way, the cookie is stored on your web browser only temporarily; the cookie is destroyed at the end of the transaction or at the end of the browser session.

2. How do I get my last hunting license number or my hunter safety license number?

To obtain your previous Maine State hunting license number, please contact us by email at ifw.webmaster@maine.gov or info@informe.org. Please be sure to include your full name and date of birth so that we may look up this information for you.

To obtain your Maine State hunter safety license number, you can contact the IFW Safety Office at 207-287-5220.

3. What do I do if I don't have my MOSES ID number?

You do not need your MOSES ID number to complete your purchase online. You'll just leave that field blank and fill in your name, date of birth and zip code.

4. What happens if I purchased an incorrect authority?

If you purchase an incorrect authority, please contact InforME at 207-621-2600 or info@informe.org within 30 days of the initial transaction date. We will process a credit to the original form of payment for the charge minus the agent fee. InforME can only process credits for purchases made online.

5. Can I purchase multiple licenses for multiple people in one transaction?

Yes. You can purchase for up to three different licensees in a single transaction. You will need to know each licensee's name, date of birth, mailing address, and personal information to continue.

6. Who can use the service?

Any Resident, Non-Resident or Canadian Sportsperson looking to hunt or fish in the State of Maine can use this online service provided that the person is not a convicted felon and has a previous hunter safety license or hunting license number. This online service is not available for individuals that need to obtain a Complimentary license, Lifetime license, Military license or those from countries other than the United States or Canada.
