Holders of Senior Lifetime Consolidated Licenses

This license has been eliminated, but persons who already hold this license are “grandfathered” and do not need to purchase the Senior Hunting License, Archery, or Muzzleloader Stamps. However, they must buy a Bonus Antlered Deer Stamp (to hunt a bonus antlered deer), a Maryland Migratory Game Bird Stamp (to hunt migratory game birds), a DNR Managed Hunt Permit (where required), and a Furbearer Permit (to hunt or chase furbearers). A Big Game Harvest Record may be obtained at no charge from any DNR Sport License Agent location, in person or by mail from any DNR Service Center, or you can print your own at www.dnr.maryland.gov/service​.
