“Canada goose hunting is a time-honored Maryland tradition that gives friends and family a chance to reconnect as they enjoy the sights and sounds of a day in the field,” Wildlife and Heritage Service Director Paul Peditto said  “We encourage all hunters to bring a new or novice hunter along on a trip to their waterfowl blind.”

More information about waterfowl seasons, regulations and license requirements, is available online.

Licenses, stamps, and permits may be purchased by phone at 855-855-3906, at a Department of Natural Resources Service Center or at any one of the more than 250 Sport License Agents statewide.
