Public Hunting Lands

Brought to you by:

Public Hunting Lands include Wildlife Management Areas (WMAs), State Parks, State Forests including Chesapeake Forest Lands (CFLs), Cooperative Wildlife Management Areas (CWMAs), Natural Environment Areas (NEAs), Natural Resources Management Areas (NRMAs), and Maryland-National Capital Park & Planning Commission (MNCPPC) managed lands.

Hunting and trapping of game species as they are found on these public hunting lands is permitted in accordance with State and federal laws and the restrictions for each area. Stands and blinds are limited to those of a temporary nature which must be removed at the end of each day. No target shooting is permitted except at public shooting ranges. The use of hunting dogs by a licensed person in designated hunting areas for legal species is permitted. Possession or use of weapons is prohibited in State Forests outside of regular open hunting seasons. On Chesapeake Forest Lands an individual may not hunt within 150 yards of an occupied buildinig or camp and within 150 feet of any exterior Chesapeake Forest Lands boundary. Please check the Chesapeake Forest website for complete listing of public hunting on CFLs and updated maps. Call to check on rules or conditions for each location. Maps of WMAs, State Forests, CFLs, and State Parks are available on the Maryland Department of Natural Resources website at: http://www.dnr.maryland.gov under Parks, Wildlife, or Trees. A consolidated listing of areas for hunters with mobility impairments can be found here.

Hunting on Other Publicly Owned Property

Federal and Local Jurisdiction Properties

Hunting is allowed on some federal property in Maryland, as well as on some properties owned by local jurisdictions. Though state wildlife regulations and laws apply throughout Maryland, these other properties restrict public access by their own authority. Their hours, seasons, hunting devices, bag limits and other details may differ from state information. For information about hunting on non-state owned properties, you must contact the administrative offices of the properties themselves. Federal facilities in Maryland include: Aberdeen Proving Grounds (Harford, 410-278-4124); Assateague Island National Seashore (Worcester, 410-641-3030); Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge (Dorchester, 410-228-5018, 410-228-2677); Eastern Neck National Wildlife Refuge (Kent, 410-639-7056); North Tract- Patuxent Wildlife Research Center (Anne Arundel, 301-776-3090); and Beltsville Agriculture Research Center (Prince George’s, 301-504-6009). County facilities include: MNCPPC Parks (Montgomery, 301-949-4135); Howard County Department of Recreation and Parks (Howard, 410-313-1675).

  • C & O Canal National Historical Park

    Hunters, during designated state hunting seasons, with firearms unloaded, traditional bows unstrung, compound bows unnocked, crossbows uncocked, and dogs leashed, may cross the C & O Canal National Historical Park lands by the most direct route only at designated locations. Hunters may also transport legally taken and properly tagged game across park property at the same designated locations. A listing of these designated locations is published annually in the Park’s Compendium and may be obtained by contacting the C & O Canal National Historic Park at these numbers: Sharpsburg, 301-739-4200; Potomac, 301-413-0720; Hancock, 301-678-5463; Oldtown, 301-478-5519; Cumberland, 301-722-8226.

  • Monocacy National Battlefield—Frederick County

    Existing National Park Service (NPS) regulations prohibit hunting and trapping on identified NPS properties. The NPS has informed the State of Maryland that this regulation will be enforced for that portion of the Monocacy River lying within the boundaries of the Monocacy National Battlefield in Frederick County. The boundaries of the park will be marked on both shores by green and white signs.

 

Regulations in red are new this year.
