News from the DNR Office of Communications

Cedar Point Wildlife Management Area Opens to Hunting

Welcome, Md. (September 21, 2009)Cedar Point Wildlife Management Area (WMA) is now open to hunting. The Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR) acquired the 1,926-acre property - located in the southwestern portion of Charles County - in March 2009.

“This new Charles County Wildlife Management Area will provide a variety of new hunting opportunities for Maryland sportsmen and women,” said Southern Region Habitat Manager Jim Bennett. “Cedar Point WMA’s diversity of woodlands, wetlands, agricultural fields and shoreline will provide numerous opportunities to hunt upland and forest game, migratory game birds, waterfowl and deer.”

Hunting on Cedar Point WMA is in accordance with established season dates and bag limits, except for waterfowl. Waterfowl hunting at Cedar Point WMA will open Dec 15.

Hunter access to Cedar Point WMA will not require possession of a seasonal permit or daily reservations. Hunters must park in designated parking areas and the number of vehicles permitted per parking area will be limited and designated on signs posted in the parking areas.

Additional information about the Cedar Point WMA is available online at http://www.dnr.state.md.us/wildlife/wmasouthern.asp.

I use to waterfowl and deer hunt there years ago.Still knew the guys who just lost it to public.They mostly waterfowl hunted it as well.Said the deer hunting went down over the years because how the farm was managed.Most had stop deer hunting it all together.May be a few years before deer numbers will be what you expect.I shed hunted three years ago for a whole day with no luck the deer sign told me not to try again.It should be a awesome place.That piece of land has it all.

they did it because they know how many dummies will fall for the charles county giant stories and pay alot of money for non resident liscences and flock in by the hundreds...there will be fights in the parking lots and in a year or 2 it will be just like every wma in southern md.....DESOLITE no hoof left behind...as far as water fowl hunting thats one of the only places i see shovlers and canvisbacks anymore..say goodbye to them

I pretty much agree with franklin here.  There are deer at Cedarville, Myrtle Grove, and Chapel Point, but not like the Loch Ravens and the other (city or yankee or whatever you want to call them) parks the guys on here talk about. But congrats on Md for preserving land.  I do like that.
