ANNAPOLIS As part of an ongoing effort to offer additional hunting opportunities across the state, the Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR) Wildlife and Heritage Service in cooperation with the Patuxent River Naval Air Station, today announced the availability of 10 new waterfowl hunting sites along the waters of the Chesapeake Bay. The new sites are located adjacent to Bloodsworth, Pone, Adam and Northeast Islands in Dorchester County.
These new sites open the waters adjacent to one of the most remote areas of the state, said Paul A. Peditto, director of the Wildlife and Heritage Service. We are excited to offer hunters this new opportunity.
A special permit is required to hunt these new sites. The permit, as well as a complete set of regulations and a map of the area, can be downloaded from the DNR website at www.dnr.state.md.us/wildlife/waterfowl.asp or by calling the Wildlife and Heritage Service at 410-260-8540. Sites are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Special conditions for hunting at these sites are included on the permit.
