The Maryland Department of Natural Resources announced the winter portion of the firearm deer hunting season opens Friday in Deer Management Region B, which includes all of the state except the westernmost counties. Hunters with a valid hunting license may use firearms to harvest sika and white-tailed deer during this season.
The season is open Jan. 10-11 in all Region B counties. The season is open Sunday, Jan. 12, as follows:
>> On private and designated public lands – Cecil and St. Mary’s counties.
>> On private lands only – Calvert, Caroline, Carroll, Charles, Dorchester, Frederick, Harford, Kent, Montgomery, Queen Anne’s, Somerset, Washington (Zone 1), and Worcester counties. Shooting hours end at 10:30 a.m. in Kent and Montgomery counties.
“This season provides deer hunters with another chance to fill their firearms season bag limit if they have not already done so,” Wildlife and Heritage Service Director Paul Peditto said. “The resulting deer harvest contributes positively to managing deer in Region B.”
Hunters are encouraged to consult the Maryland Guide to Hunting and Trapping for information on bag limits, regulations, and registration procedures.
