Hunters and hunting are something Josh Sandt has dealt with in Maryland for more than 20 years. Four months ago, Sandt found himself dealing with it in a new way -- as acting director of the wildlife division of the Department of Natural Resources.Before taking over for Gary Taylor, who had taken an assignment in Washington, Sandt had been the director of Maryland's deer program, an operation he still has a keen interest in.And if the stock market were rising the way Maryland's deer herd is, happy days would indeed be here again.

The Maryland deer harvest was not as far off as preliminary statistics seemed to indicate, said Josh Sandt, forest wildlife supervisor for the Forest, Park and Wildlife Service. Rather, the harvest for the recent firearms season kept the kill rate on the level it has been increasing over the past 10 years."We're only off 2,000 deer from what our harvest was last year [1990 total 31,849, 1989 total 34,518]," Sandt said. "But if you look at it from a long-term standpoint, over the past 10 years we have been increasing about 3,000 animals each year."

Since 1985, the federal Conservation Reserve Program has allowed more than 36 million acres of marginal agricultural lands to be restored to grasses and trees that provide cover for wildlife.As of March last year, 19,294 acres in Maryland were enrolled in the CRP, and the state has started its own land conservation program with a goal of enrolling 100,000 acres of environmentally sensitive lands statewide by 2002."The Conservation Reserve Enhancement Program is a super opportunity," said Joshua Sandt, deputy director of DNR's Wildlife and Heritage Division.

Joshua Sandt, director of the state's Wildlife and Heritage Division, said Friday that game managers will decide tomorrow whether the firearms hunting season for deer will be continued for two days in January.Unless yesterday turned out much better than expected, Sandt said, "There is a good likelihood the season will be continued, probably excluding the five western counties."In Garrett, Allegany, Washington, Frederick and Carroll counties, the firearms season has been an effective tool in controlling the deer population.

In 1956, state wildlife officials estimated that only 12 black bears remained in Maryland. Nearly a quarter of a century ago, the state listed the black bear as an endangered species within its borders.In the years since, the number of black bears has increased to the point where wildlife biologists now estimate there are as many as 400 moving through the western counties of the state.And where for more than 100 years black bears had been rare and secretive residents of the remote forests and wetlands of mountainous Garrett and Allegany counties, now they are present in numbers that are testing the patience of landowners and challenging the skills and technology of game managers.

While the Blizzard of 1996 may seem like a catastrophe from a human point of view, Maryland's wildlife and the Chesapeake Bay should escape relatively unharmed from the 2 feet or more of snow blanketing the state -- unless it lingers or gets much worse.Deep snow covers up the acorns, nuts, grasses and other food that sustain wild animals and birds through the winter.It also could flood streams and bay tributaries with dirty, salt-laden runoff if it melts all at once.But state officials say not to worry, at least not yet."

The wild duck populations that will fly south from the prairie pothole regions on the north central United States and central Canada early this fall are at higher levels than at any time since the early 1980s and similar to counts in the early 1970s, according to figures compiled by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.And when Maryland opens its duck hunting season in October, it is possible that hunters will have a 40-day season, with a bag limit of three ducks per day.The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, which originally planned to allow four ducks per day and a 30-day season, now has given Maryland the option of more ducks per day or more days to hunt.

In midweek, while the coastal plain in Maryland was covered with a relatively thin layer of ice and snow and beset by temperatures that dropped a few degrees below zero, in the state's western mountains the snow had mounted to more than 2 feet in some places and the temperature at Cumberland had reached an all-time recorded low of minus-30 degrees.In the peak of daylight, the surface of the snow melted slightly, the water seeping into the upper layers of the snow beneath. As daylight faded into sub-zero nights, the melted surface and the upper layers of wet snow beneath froze again, with each cycle of freeze and thaw thickening a bridge of icy crust over thousands of acres of feeding habitat for deer, turkey and other wildlife.

The Department of Natural Resources is involved in a number of projects that get little public notice.Did you know, for example, that since 1987 a ruffed grouse trap-and-release project has been successfully sailing along in nearby Charles County? This is a joint DNR/Ruffed Grouse Society project and works similarly to the wildly successful turkey trap-and-release program."Joe Shugars has been running the project for us and he's been very successful. Joe, with the help of the Ruffed Grouse Society, has been trapping grouse in Western Maryland and releasing them at selected locations in Charles County," said Josh Sandt, the DNR's Director of Wildlife.
