BOSTON (AP) — The new year is a few weeks away but it’s not too early to think about 2014 hunting and fishing licenses.
The Massachusetts Division of Fisheries and Wildlife reported 2014 hunting, sporting, fishing, and trapping licenses will be available for purchase starting on Monday. They can be purchased at all license vendor locations, MassWildlife District offices, the West Boylston Field Headquarters, and online at MassFishHunt.org.
Anyone 15 or older needs a license to hunt or for freshwater fishing.
Freshwater fishing licenses for minors ages 15 to 17 are free and can be obtained online.
The Division of Fisheries and Wildlife also reminds hunters that all deer harvested during shotgun season must be checked at a check station. Online checking is not available from Dec. 2 until Dec. 14.
