Three-Day Goose Hunting Season to Open at Deep Creek Lake


A new hunting opportunity on Deep Creek Lake in Garrett County will allow hunters to harvest geese at one of three open water sites on Nov. 23, 24 and 25, 2015. Goose hunting on Deep Creek Lake is by permit and reservation only during these select days of the season.

The hunt was developed to address resident concerns regarding health and sanitation issues caused by the abundance of Canada geese on the lake.

To participate, hunters must apply for a seasonal hunting permit available online here.

Hunters must be within 50 feet of the buoy marking the designated blind site, except for the purpose of retrieving game. To view a map of the hunting site, click here.
