AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - Maine hunting and fishing licenses for next year are now available.

Officials with the state Department of Inland Fisheries & Wildlife say 2017 hunting and fishing licenses can be bought online or at more than 800 licensing agents around the state.

The state uses an online licensing system to allow people to purchase and print licenses. State officials say the proceeds from the sales stay with the fisheries and wildlife department.

Maine has more than 17 million acres of forested land and 32,000 miles of rivers and streams. Some of the most popular hunting seasons are for deer, bear and moose. Those all take place in the fall.
