I was just looking at the MD DNR hunting Calendar. I'm a region B hunter, but noticed that region A has only a 2 day firearms season this year. Is that new? I don't recall it being so short, but I never paid much attention to it.

Fire arms season is the same statewide. Region A just has different bag limits and no January season.

Nov. 30–Dec. 14
Firearm Season is also open
Jan. 10–Jan. 12 in Region B only

You can read up on ballistics if you want, but just trust me. Especially if you have a really fast bow or crossbow, the difference between flat land zero and shooting downhill zero is very significant. They make rangefinders with angle compensation ranging now, which tells you what equivalent flat land range to shoot that deer at so you don’t need to aim low, you simply aim at a closer horizontal range than the deer is standing.
Yup....makes sense to me.In my younger day,I used to climb higher in the tree,which made the angle steeper.

Yup, that’s standard. You get one day on public lands and an extra day if you are a landowner for Sunday to bag an antlerless.

Between how many folks who live in western MD are hunters combine with all the folks who go out to western MD to hunt...a long season means higher success rates which means too many deer killed.

It’s central MD that has the real deer population issues. Eastern MD has the farms and what not to support a bigger population of deer
