An Act To Expand Deer Hunting Opportunities for Junior Hunters

Be it enacted by the People of the State of Maine as follows:

Sec. 1. 12 MRSA §11152, sub-§5-A  is enacted to read:

5-A Permit transfer to junior hunter.   Notwithstanding subsection 5, a junior hunter may take an antlerless deer if another person who is 18 years of age or older and holds a valid antlerless deer permit transfers that permit to that junior hunter by identifying the name and address of the transferee on the permit as well as any other information reasonably requested by the commissioner and then returns the permit to the department at least 48 hours prior to the junior hunter's hunting antlerless deer. Upon transfer of the antlerless deer permit to a junior hunter, the transferor may not hunt an antlerless deer pursuant to the transferred permit but remains eligible, unless otherwise prohibited, to take a deer other than an antlerless deer in accordance with this Part.

The commissioner shall record a transfer under this subsection and return the permit to the transferee. A valid permit must be in the possession of the transferee in order for the transferee to take an antlerless deer.

Effective 90 days following adjournment of the 127th Legislature, First Regular Session, unless otherwise indicated.
