Myrtle Grove won't honor Elk Neck shooting permit


ELKTON -- Permits for using the Elk Neck State Forest shooting range in Cecil County will no longer be honored at the Myrtle Grove Wildlife Management Area range in Charles County after Dec. 31, Department of Natural Resources authorities said this week.

Permits had been honored at either location, department officials said.

Separate permits will enable DNR officials to manage and

maintain each facility more effectively, said Jeffrey L. Horan of the department's Central Regional Office.

Permits cost $20. For those over 65 or under 18, the price is $10. A birth certificate or driver's license is required for proof of age.

1994 Elk Neck permit applications will be issued at the Regional Service Center, 2 S. Bond St. in Bel Air, at the Elk Neck State Forest Office in North East on Route 272, or at the Tawes State Office Building, 520 Taylor Ave., Annapolis.

Permit applications for Myrtle Grove are available at Hallowing .. Point Regional Service Center in Price Frederick, at the Myrtle Grove Office on Route 225 and at the Tawes State Office Building in Annapolis.
