Larry Hogan - Governor of Maryland

Dear Friends:

Secretary Belton and I are pleased to introduce you to the 2016-2017 Guide to Hunting and Trapping in Maryland. I hope you find this information useful as you enjoy outdoor activities and recreation throughout our beautiful state.

I have lived in Maryland my entire life, and have had tremendous opportunities to visit many parts of this great state—from the hills of Mountain Maryland to the marshes of the Eastern Shore. As sportsmen and women, your love for the great outdoors plays an important role in our state’s environmental efforts. Hunting enthusiasts have a long history of being dedicated conservationists, who devote their time and energy to preserving our environment, natural resources, cultural areas, and heritage.

To ensure that current and future generations will carry on this legacy, our administration is committed to finding new opportunities for hunters and trappers throughout Maryland. Thank you again for all that you do, and I hope you will enjoy the diverse hunting and trapping opportunities across our great state’s unique landscape.

Best wishes for a safe and successful season, this year and for many years to come.

Larry Hogan,

Governor of Maryland

Mark Belton,

Secretary of the Maryland Department of Natural Resources
