Crownsville Cooperative Wildlife Management Area Opens to Hunting

The Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has opened a new deer hunting area in Anne Arundel County. The 546 acre Crownsville Cooperative Wildlife Management Area (CWMA) will open for regulated deer hunting beginning on Nov 26, 2012 and running through Jan 31, 2013.  Deer hunting only is permitted at Crownsville CWMA. The program will follow established season dates and bag limits found in the 2012-2013 Guide to Hunting and Trapping in Maryland.

The new program is designed to provide managed-access to the site through a partnership with DNR and Anne Arundel County Parks. Anne Arundel County Parks acquired this property in 2009. At that time, the Maryland Board of Public Works required development of a CWMA as a mandatory condition of the transfer.

To access to Crownsville CWMA, hunters will need to have a seasonal permit and daily reservations. Hunters must park in designated parking areas only. Additional information about Crownsville CWMA and the DNR Southern Region Public Hunting Reservation System is available online or by phone at the Myrtle Grove WMA office at 301-743-5161.
