I just wanted to post this and clear this up. With the All Species Sunday hunting bill passing for Washington, Allegheny and Garrett Counties, that does not mean waterfowl is legal.
The DNR website says:
“Waterfowl hunting is closed on Sundays by Maryland law and federal regulation
So basically, we only fixed one problem in Maryland Law, but only in three counties and Federal Regulation will not change until all counties are open on Sundays.http://www.dnr.state.md.us/huntersguide/lwfchart.asp
So, you still can't hunt waterfowl in the three counties, on Sunday, but you can hunt everything else, on Sunday. If you want waterfowl legal on Sundays you have to get the rest of the counties to approve the same bill as these three.
Now, just so you know. Many guys on the eastern shore work schedules allow for getting off during the week and they like the compensatory days that lengthen the season a week or so for them. For those that do not know, compensatory days are added on in December for every Sunday during the season. So the late season opens 12/19 - 1-29 which has 6 Sundays and 2 maybe in November during the Middle Season. So maybe 8 Sunday and that might change the start date from 12/19 to 12/27 or something like that as a reference.
This is a post for knowledge and not having to answer this question to everyone that wants to e-mail as I am Western Region director. I am also the Mod for this Maryland forum and if anyone starts the for or against spiting contests it WILL edit or delete your posts, so play nice.
