White-Tailed Deer Season Reopens In 21 Maryland Counties
ANNAPOLIS, Md. —-(AmmoLand.com)- Maryland’s Firearm Deer Season will reopen for white-tailed deer on January 8 and 9 in Deer Management Region B.
This two-day deer season provides additional opportunities for landowners to manage deer numbers, while offering hunters a late season recreational opportunity.
The firearm season is closed in Deer Management Region A (Allegany and Garrett counties) and the sika deer firearm season is closed as well.
“The late firearm season is a great time to harvest antlerless deer,” said Wildlife and Heritage Service Deer Project Leader Brian Eyler. “In January 2009, about 80% of the 4,160 deer harvested were antlerless. This additional opportunity is an important part of our deer management scheme in Region B.”
Complete bag limits, season dates and other deer hunting information can be found on the DNR website www.dnr.maryland.gov/huntersguide.
The 2009-2010 Maryland Guide to Hunting & Trapping issued with each hunting license contains detailed information about all of Maryland’s hunting seasons.
