You'll need a ME non-resident hunting license...other than that I think you'll be good to go. I believe that you will need 5 round mags as well.
Edit: Be sure to follow FOPA when traveling and keep a copy of the law with you.

I cannot possibly stress this enough. Follow the FOPA, know it by heart and keep a copy with you. No loaded mags, keep ammunition and firearm separate in separate locked containers in your trunk. Do the speed limit and don't stop between Point A and Point B for anything but gas.

And what was that advice we were given about not getting into a firefight on a limited acess highway no matter how bad I had to piss and how heavy traffic was?

Nah, I think he said that despite what we might think, a firefight on a limited access highway will not get traffic moving easier. Wasn't that around the time you were contemplating jumping out of the car to go take a piss in one of the portable toilets that were in the median for the construction guys?
