Let’s start with Sunday hunting. Since I don’t hunt small game I just noticed this.  Small game may be hunted on all Sundays during the open season.  But that only pertains to 3 counties… 
Can you please make it the same across the whole state???

Pheasant season- Other than pen raised we don’t have any. Why is there a season?

Crow season- Wed- Sat only.  There’s no limit and it opens for 6 months. What’s the reason behind the selected allowed days?

Sunday Hunting- The following small game species may be hunted on all Sundays during the open season on private and designated public lands in Allegany, Garrett and Washington counties: eastern cottontail rabbits, gray squirrels, eastern fox squirrels, red squirrels, quail (Washington County only), ruffed grouse, pheasants.

We have been asking these questions for years...........why has DNR not answered them?
Why havnt we changed them?
Also for some reason Sunday hunting is controlled by the individual county.....not the State......again why?

Crow season it is what it is to make Mexico happy since it is their national bird, and it is in some trade agreement. That is what I have always been told

Years ago migratory game bird regulations were passed.  Crows are migratory, as a result they have to be regulated, and as regulations are based on scientific data, they are closed to allow breeding and as a migratory bird cannot be hunted on sundays.  No idea why mon and tues were included.

You can hunt migratory birds in other states on Sunday, like geese in NY

When I was I was a kid, I used to hunt crows in Pennsylvania on Sundays because it was one of the few things you could hunt on Sunday.

Crows are migratory? Wasn't aware of that. Is that stated in the regs somewhere?

Lobbyist such as the horse council. Absurdly no good reason y oh should not be able to hunt all Sundays on private if you are paying property taxes with the appropriate number of federally allotted days for instance for waterfowl when the f eds have restrictions across all states. The deer around do have access to the md hunting guide and when you can or can't hunt Sundays. 5 bucks on trail cam this past Sunday at 3pm. Most daytime activity in a while.

The way I've always understood crow season is the Federal government allots a total number of hunting days (not sure if allotted equally to all states) and leaves it up to the states to determine the seasons with the only conditions that the season cannot be open during their breeding season for that area.

In MD, there is a very long season by months because it is closed Sun-Tue every week.  WV, for instance, runs 10/1 - 11/18 and 1/1 - 3/3 this year.  It appears shorter because the season is open 7 days a week during those periods.  I guess which one you favor more depends on your free time and your days off work.

While we are the subject of regulations I heard about proposals for deer bag limits for bucks. If approved it would change the buck limit to 2 per year with a bonus tag that could be used in any season. This would help Region A which doesn't have bonus stamps now. Also the bear season would go to 5 days . Anyone else hear about these possible changes?

If that’s true it doesn’t really help much I need to see more deer. I can manage my bucks myself. N if the crow thing is true that’s hilarious. Someone should tell trump. I can see it now pay for the wall or the crows are going to be extinct.

How many bucks can you kill for the year now in Region B including the Bonus buck stamps?This proposal calls for a limit of 2 bucks for the year with one additional with the bonus stamp. Will this change the totals you are now allowed in B?

I think unlimited does is a big problem for the deer herd. I saw where only 3% of Md hunters take 3 bucks a year does that sound correct for Region B ?

Idk exact numbers but I’m sure a few guys manage to kill 4 bucks a year. It wouldn’t b to difficult to shoot 4 scrub bucks a year. But I think shooting bucks does less damage to herd numbers than killing 4 does.

The sunday hunting chart that lists each county looks like a chess board....

Trying to figure out which county is open on which sunday is way more complicated than doing taxes...

I get the private/public thing in a sense.. But on my own places in Caroline no sundays until mid october, but nkt the sunday of youth weekend, then all sundays until fire arm ends, except the sunday of extended rifle... But if I go to Dorchester, the next county down, its not always the same sundays being open.

Yes at minimal deer should b open on sun all season on private. There’s no reason for it not to. If the horse people are scared quit trespassing. N if the landowner is a horse person well they can make the call

Here are the regs that I question. 


CAN SOMEONE PLEASE EXPLAIN THIS TO ME?

How does it make sense that in certain counties it is illegal for me to sit 20ft up in a tree and shoot down at a deer with a 300 win mag but I can legally take that same win mag and and shoot up into a tree at a squirrel?

funny thing is I permission to hunt two horse farms that allow deer hunting.  One of the owners family has hounds and likes to run them on occasions with the horses.  Only once do I recall them ever running the horses while I was hunting.   they got in trouble from the neighbors for running the hounds and horses  on the neighbors farm while they were deer hunting.  go figure.  the one grand daughter who had 15 or so hounds finally moved out of one of the old farm houses down the road so we don't have to listen to the hounds  raising heck every time we drive by.  they other neighbors behind me don't allow any one to ride horses in the woods during deer season for their safety.  they are just as concerned that some jack wipe trespassing and poaching may choot them or the deer.  they said they walk right up to deer while on horse back all the time and said it would be easy pickens most of the time to take a deer while on horse back.

Yea I hunt 2 horse farms also n we actually hAve are own horses. They hunt Thur n sun on one farm so I don’t hunt Thur mornings n can’t hunt sundays. Other farms asks me to hunt sundays even though it’s illegal lol. Go figure. The hounds man lives across the street n I hunt thier 10 acres to. But they to have gotten yelled at for trespassing n the neighboring horse back riders ride on her farm all the time without her knowing n dog walkers n the likes. It’s like they don’t understand it’s not thier property or think cAuse they are in the “ hunt club “ they cAn ride anywhere they feel. You can get pretty close to some deer on horse back. Minus the 20 hounds n horns.
