NANJEMOY, Md. (May 4, 2012) The newly established Riverside Wildlife Management Area (WMA) is now open to hunting. The Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR) acquired this 373-acre property located in the south-western portion of Charles County in 2010.
With its diverse landscape, this new Charles County Wildlife Management Area will provide a variety of new opportunities for Maryland Sportsmen to hunt upland and forest game, migratory game birds, waterfowl and deer, said Southern Region Habitat Manager Jim Bennett.
Riverside WMA is open to regulated hunting for all game species and follows established season dates and bag limits. Hunters can find those regulations in the 2011-2012 Guide to Hunting and Trapping in Maryland. Waterfowl hunting and trapping on Riverside WMA will be by permit only.
Hunter access to Riverside WMA will not require possession of a seasonal permit or daily reservations. Hunters must park in designated parking areas only.
Additional information about the Riverside WMA is available at http://dnr.maryland.gov/wildlife/publiclands/wmasouthern.asp or by calling the Myrtle Grove WMA office at 301-743-5161.
