Deer hunters are reminded that antlerless deer permit sales will begin October 6, 2008, for surplus permits remaining in Wildlife Management Zones (WMZs) 10, 11, 13, and 14. There are NO surplus permits available for any other wildlife management zones this year. Hunters will be allowed to purchase one permit per zone per day. The cost is $5.00 per permit. Permits will be sold in MassWildlife's Westborough, Acton, West Boylston, Pittsfield, and Belchertown offices.

Southeast District permit sales during the first week – October 6-10 – will be at the Myles Standish State Forest Interpretive Center, then sales will move to the MassWildlife Bourne office for the remainder of the season. Hunters who purchased their hunting/sporting license online may purchase permits online at www.mass.gov/massoutdoors OR at any MassWildlife District Office.

Once the quota is reached in a particular WMZ, permit sales for that zone will stop. Hunters must present their original license to purchase permits; carbon copies or photocopies of licenses will not be accepted. A person may bring the original license(s) of another hunter and purchase permits for him/her. MassWildlife encourages anyone who has not yet done so to return their permit notification or reapplication card as soon as possible. Re-applicant postcards will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis.
