Hunting In Maryland

I just recently moved into the state, currently living in Montgomery County and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on good places to go hunting? I hunt deer and upland game.

Check out Patuxent River State Park. Deer, Upland game, dove, etc. Excellent place for dove, crow, and squirrel in particular.

This is the most versatile public hunting land in and around Montgomery county, and is definitely your best bet. It's my stomping grounds of choice.

No centerfire rifles or handguns, though.

as a kid growing up, i hunted deer (unfortunately unsuccessfully) in green ridge and savage river/new germany forests out in western maryland. green ridge should be about 2 hrs west from monkey county, it's right off of I-68. savage river/new germany another hour west from there.

Theres also McKee-Besher WMA in upper Montgoco. Sits along the Potomac River just above Seneca. It is public hunting -but Im sure like most public hunting grounds, during certain seasons, you will have company.

They do have corn fields, and soybean crops (at least the last time I went there - many years ago!) Also some wetland areas.

Here is the Maryland DNR link for McKee-Besher with a map how to get there:

hunting

Download Google Earth then work it out to Green ridge state park, located on I-68 between Hancock and Cumberland, MD. If you are willing to hike a little, there is a lot of good public hunting area in Western MD. Most hunters seem to stick within a few hundred yards of the road. I live near the Indian Springs Wildlife management area, near Clear Spring, MD, and even there if you hike a ways you can find good hunting. Go to the MD DNR website, they should have some maps of hunting areas in Western MD. Out here we can still hunt with rifles.

Thanks everyone, it looks like the Mckee Besher lands butt right up to seneca creek park hunting lands? And I am no stranger to putting on a few miles during a hunt, it's almost required in Maine where I used to hunt.

There are 10's of THOUSANDS of under hunted acres on Eastern Shore.....and it's ALL rifle country!

Headin' out to Patuxent River State Park in about an hour. A little evening Dove/Crow/Squirrel action to end the work week.

Will be set up off Hipsley Mill Rd. near Annapolis Rock Rd.
