HUNT­ING: The Maryland Department of Nat­u­ral Re­sources re­cently an­nounced the dates of the an­nual two-week firearm deer sea­son. Hunters may use firearms to har­vest sika and whitetailed deer from Satur­day through Dec. 10. The DNR re­minded hunters that an antler point re­stric­tion has been in­sti­tuted for white-tailed deer. Hunters may har­vest up to two antlered deer per li­cense year, which have two or fewer points on each antler present. Any ad­di­tional antlered deer taken within the le­gal sea­sons and bag lim­its must have at least three points on one antler. Li­censed ju­nior hunters are ex­empt from the re­stric­tion. Hunters who use tree stands are strongly ad­vised to wear a full-body safety har­ness, which should be se­cured at all times.
