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.

To set your web browser to accept cookies, please follow the instructions below:

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

At this time, you can purchase multiple licenses for one user in a single transaction. You can add as many items for that person to your cart before proceeding to the payment screen. At this time, you cannot purchase licenses for more than one person in one payment transaction. We are exploring options to allow for this and hope to have a solution in place within the next few months.


6. How do I purchase a license for someone else?

To purchase a license for someone else, enter the name, date of birth and zip code for the person whose name will be on the license. When you finish adding items to your cart, you will have the opportunity to enter credit card information for another person.


7. 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 certificate 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.
