We know 2020 has been challenging, but with hunting season in full swing, we want to remind hunters that you must have a valid license and any required permits or stamps to hunt in Maryland. This includes the federal duck stamp which is required to be current and valid.

Due to the pandemic and the temporary closure of DNR’s licensing centers, a grace period was in place for existing license holders whose recreational hunting licenses expired during the state of emergency. That grace period will end on January 1, 2021. Licenses, permits, and stamps can be obtained at Maryland Department of Natural Resources Licensing Centers by appointment only, by visiting a retail sport license agent or by using the department’s online COMPASS portal.

News Release, Maryland Department of Natural Resources
Application Deadline Aug. 31; Drawing Sept. 3

The Maryland Department of Natural Resources is now accepting applications for the 2020 black bear hunt lottery. Successful applicants will receive a permit valid for the five-day hunting season, which will take place Oct. 26-30 in Allegany, Frederick, Garrett, and Washington counties. The department will issue 950 hunting permits this year, an increase of 150 from the previous season.

The annual bear hunt is an important management tool used to slow the increase of Maryland’s black bear population and limit the expansion of Maryland bears into the eastern suburbs and cities.

“Maryland’s closely regulated, the sustainable black bear hunt is now in its 17th year,” Wildlife and Heritage Service Director Paul Peditto said. “This hunt has been helping us achieve our management goal of limiting the growth of our bear population while ensuring a secure and sustainable future for this remarkable species.”

Hunters may apply for the lottery online or at one of more than 250 hunting and fishing license agents across the state. Hunters need a valid DNR ID number to participate.

All entries must be completed by 11:59 p.m. Aug. 31 and must be accompanied by a $15 nonrefundable application fee. Only one application per person will be accepted; submitting duplicates can result in disqualification and forfeiture. The drawing will be held Sept. 3 and winners will be notified shortly thereafter.

The Black Bear Damage Reimbursement Fund is open for voluntary contributions by hunters when they apply for their permits. This fund directly reimburses Maryland farmers who have suffered agricultural damage caused by black bears. Since the fund was started over 20 years ago, it has paid more than $130,000 in eligible claims.
