Hunting permit

Maple Grove issues permits for limited hunting of deer, geese and turkeys. To hunt in the city, you must possess a valid deer, goose, or turkey hunting permit signed by a designee of the Maple Grove Police Department.


  1. Complete the permit application (see options below) and include the signature of the landowner(s) giving you permission to hunt in a specific location.
  2. Mail the completed application along with required payment and photocopies of your ID and hunter safety certificate to:

    Maple Grove Police Department
    Attn: Records Unit / Hunting Permits
    12800 Arbor Lakes Parkway

    Or email the completed permit and mail payment separately to the mailing address above.

    These are the preferred methods to limit traffic in the lobby of the Public Safety Facility. The permits will be either emailed or mailed upon completion by office staff.
