What is a Maine Outfitter Moose Tag?

The Maine Outfitter Tag program is designed to support Hunting Lodges and Outfitters. Every year, a small percentage of Maine moose permits are allocated to them. These permits are guaranteed tags and limited in number. The tags are normally sold in individual auctions and typically sell for $20,000 to $40,000 depending on the Outfitter.

Maine Bull Moose Eligibility Requirements:

Hunting License Required – Applicants must be eligible to obtain a Maine big game license by opening day of the moose hunting season. Minimum age of 10 years old by opening day. (September 25, 2023)

Three year waiting period – If  you have won a permit in the Maine lottery in the past three moose seasons, you would not be eligible to purchase this tag from Rustic Retreat Lodge LLC. If you won the state auction, you would be eligible, however purchase of Rustic Retreat Lodge LLC’s tag would require a three-year waiting period for the general Maine moose lottery moving forward.
