Maryland Whitetail Season Begins

September 6, 2014

September 6th has brought the start of a new Maryland Whitetail season. Reports around the state shows that the deer herd came out of winter very well and sightings of mature bucks showing up on trail cameras have the hunting forums a buzz.  With a new season comes new regulations.  Maryland has implemented a form of QDMA this year with 1 of your bucks requiring minimum of  3 points on one side. The new regs can be found here .

 

Best of Luck this season.
