Primitive Deer Hunt Dates Set

January 25th, 2024 by WCBC Radio

The Maryland Department of Natural Resources has set the state’s Primitive Deer Hunt for February 1-3 statewide. Hunters with a valid hunting license, or those exempt from the hunting license requirement, may use primitive bows or muzzleloaders to hunt sika and white-tailed deer during these days.  Primitive hunting devices are defined as long bows, recurve bows, flintlock, or sidelock percussion muzzleloaders. Hunters in Allegany, Garrett and the western portion of Washington County may harvest one antlerless deer that will not count against their existing archery or muzzleloader bag limits.
