Qual­i­fi­ca­tion shoots set for man­aged deer hunts

The Dundalk Eagle - - POLICE BEAT -

The Mary­land Depart­ment of Nat­u­ral Re­sources has re­leased the 20202021 Shooter Qual­i­fi­ca­tion Sched­ule which in­cludes 20 qual­i­fi­ca­tion ses­sions at 15 lo­ca­tions across the state. Ad­di­tional events are avail­able upon reser­va­tion.

Hunters should note that sev­eral shooter qual­i­fi­ca­tion ses­sions are con­ducted by ap­point­ment only and that many charge a min­i­mal fee to cover ex­penses. Ad­di­tion­ally, hunters must ad­here to all COVID-19 pre­cau­tions that in­di­vid­ual lo­ca­tions have in place.

These events al­low hunters to take the nec­es­sary pro­fi­ciency test re­quired to ob­tain a Shooter Qual­i­fi­ca­tion Card in or­der to par­tic­i­pate in many of the man­aged deer hunts sched­uled in the fall and win­ter.

As a re­minder, the depart­ment uses a lot­tery sys­tem to se­lect par­tic­i­pants for many of the man­aged deer hunts. There are var­i­ous dead­lines for the lot­ter­ies, which can be found on the depart­ment’s web­site.

The depart­ment will con­tin­u­ally up­date the on­line shooter qual­i­fi­ca­tion cal­en­dar as ad­di­tional events be­come avail­able.
