The recent article about rules and regulations at Loch Raven Reservoir ("Think before you leap," June 25) was very informative and was an important reminder for citizens using the reservoir. The public needs to abide by the rules in order to preserve our drinking water and for safety reasons, too. Bikers, hikers, nature photographers, birdwatchers and any other groups or individuals need to work together to support the laws put into place so that we can enjoy our beautiful Loch Raven in a respectful manner.

QUANTICO -- Early last week, the stroll into the bright moonlight at Nanticoke River Wildlife Management Area had quickly become a trudge, the pace slowed by a bagful of duck decoys, a day bag crammed with chest waders, a couple of boxes of shot shells, gloves, sandwiches and drinks, and about seven pounds of shotgun.Yesterday morning, opening day of modern firearms deer season, the walking was easier.The bag of decoys, the two boxes of shells and the nine pounds of chest waders had been left behind, replaced with a small day bag packed with a box of deer slugs, a coil of quarter-inch braided line, a strong-backed knife, a water bottle and two sliced turkey sandwiches.

DEER HUNTERS in Maryland may be about to breach a 300-year-old precedent. In a last-minute vote, the General Assembly gave them permission for the first time in three centuries to bag their quarry on Sundays. Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. is sure to be under pressure to veto the bill from hikers, birders, horseback riders and others who use the same woodlands on the weekends. But the measure as amended in the waning hours of the session requires of them such a small sacrifice -- only two Sundays a year, and only in the state's most rural counties -- that it represents a reasonable compromise worth the governor's approval.

The recent letter by Anne Roberts ("Loch Raven needs rules, but not deer hunters" June 28) was mind boggling. Yes, of course, we need to abide by the rules in order to preserve our drinking water and for safety reasons. Regarding the survey of residential properties adjacent to Loch Raven that found half of the respondents had negative experiences with hunters and hunting, I have not had one negative experience with hunters through decades of hiking in numerous states. I am a hike leader for the Community College of Baltimore County and have had negative experiences with mountain bikers each time I have led a group of hikers as well as when I hike alone.

High winds and bitter temperatures kept deer hunters at home and dropped the total number of kills for the 2010-11 season below the 100,000 mark for the first time in three years. During the archery, muzzleloader and modern firearms seasons, hunters killed 98,663 deer, down 2 percent from last year's record season. Brian Eyler, deer project leader for the Department of Natural Resources, called the season "challenging. " In addition to the weather, an abundant acorn crop meant deer did not have to leave safety to search for food.

When Colleen Ballantine, Cheryl Sanders and Bradley Kennedy size up meat for their freezers, they're thinking three things: free-range, low-fat, clean of antibiotics. The three women are deer hunters, and their market of choice is the woods of Maryland. With consumer demand rapidly growing for animals raised humanely and meat free of things not found in nature, supermarkets are stocking bison and pasture-raised beef at premium prices. But hunters -- especially women -- say white-tailed deer are nearby and plentiful, healthful and economical.

Austin's Deer Processing is hard by BWI Marshall Airport and a stone's throw from Arundel Mills on a bend in the road that really makes you slow down and pay attention. While folks were winging their way home after a visit with relatives or fighting mall traffic for those must-have holiday gifts, lots of hunters made the turn off Ridge Road and into Austin's the Saturday after Thanksgiving and the first day of Maryland gun season. There was a sense of purpose this year as hunters raced to put deer in the freezer as a way to pinch pennies.

Lingering moderate weather continues to curtail slightly the Maryland deer kill, but unseasonable temperatures have added a new perspective to late fall outdoor life.Spike Brown got an 8-point buck of 145 pounds in Pocomoke State Forest, then journeyed to Assateague Island where he landed a 12-pound, 3-ounce bluefish on cut mullet. What a day, but his wasn't the only bluefish catch, nor the biggest.Bill Shockley, who handles the scales -- for both fish and deer -- at Shockley's Weighing Station, reports a flurry of late bluefish action.
