YES! Licenses and Permits will no longer be printed and mailed to you. "MassFishHunt" allows you print your own license with tags and permits from your home computer. Washed your license or lost it in the field? "MassFishHunt" also provides the ability to print duplicate licenses and permits free of charge.
I was a longtime "MassOutdoors" customer. Was my customer information converted to "MassFishHunt"? Will I be able to find my personal information using my old Customer ID?
In most cases, yes. Tens of thousands of "MassOutdoors" customer records were converted to the "MassFishHunt" system. When you first use "MassFishHunt", try using your former Customer ID to access your customer record. If your customer information is located under your former Customer ID, you may continue to use this ID for all future "MassFishHunt" transactions. If your old customer record is not found, you may create a new customer record in "MassFishHunt". Please remember to use your new Customer ID for all future transactions.
As with "MassOutdoors", you will be able to use all major credit cards (i.e. Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express) for your "MassFishHunt" purchases. Please note that we do not accept Debit cards unless they can also be used as credit cards. Your MassFishHunt transactions will be indicated on your credit card statement as follows:
