Maryland waterfowl hunters can buy the 2007 federal duck stamp today, a day earlier than most of the rest of the country. To boost sales of the $15 stamp, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has allowed Bass Pro Shop at Arundel Mills to roll out the stamp at 10 a.m., and the Postal Service will issue first-day cancellations. Revenue from U.S. sales, about $25 million annually, is used to buy wetlands for the National Wildlife Refuge System. Maryland has three refuges on the Eastern Shore and two on the Western Shore.

As a Maryland resident sportsman, conservationist and professional wildlife biologist, I support the Chesapeake Clean Water and Ecosystem Restoration Act, which is currently before Congress. The legislation would improve water quality and wildlife habitat in the Chesapeake Bay watershed and ensure that generations of sportsmen and other outdoors enthusiasts will continue to enjoy the region's wildlife-oriented traditions.

The other evening, while starting Trapper, a mischievous, year-old black Labrador, for a walk in the three-acre wood beyond the back fence, a deer popped its head around the corner of a vine-covered blow-down 30 yards away.Trapper, intent on the comings and goings of cardinals and sparrows flitting through the brush, did not notice, so -- luckier still -- did not give chase.If he had, he would have startled not one deer, but five feeding along the greening edges of a large patch of bramble, which through most of the day is open to sunlight, but in the early evening falls into shadow and moistening.
