SEASONThe two-week firearms season for deer...


November 26, 1992|By PETER BAKER


The two-week firearms season for deer in Maryland opens Saturday and will run through Dec. 12, with no hunting on Sundays.

In all counties except Allegany and Garrett and Zone 1 of Frederick and Zone 2 of Washington counties, antlered or antlerless deer may be taken.

In Allegany, Garrett and Zone 1 of Frederick and Zone 2 of Washington, antlerless deer may be taken with a permit only between Saturday and Dec. 5. From Dec. 7 to Dec. 12, only antlered deer may be taken in those areas. Also in Garrett, Allegany, Washington Frederick counties, only one deer may be taken per day. In all other counties, the daily limit is the same as the season limit.

antlered deer is one with two or more points to one antler or with one antler three or more inches long.


Today and tomorrow, duck and geese seasons coincide and perhaps the potential is there for some of the best waterfowling of the year.

BThis split of duck season is the opener for black ducks. The daily limit for ducks is three with no more than 1 hen mallard, 1 pintail, 2 wood ducks, 1 redhead, 1 black duck or 1 fulvous tree duck.

Starting Saturday, goose season shuts down until Dec. 4 to avoid hunter conflicts during the early part of deer firearms season.
