August 20, 2020 The Dundalk Eagle Page 13 Hunting lottery open on Chesapeake Forest Lands Hunt clubs interested in obtaining a hunting lease agreement on Chesapeake Forest Lands can now enter a lottery for individual, non-leased tracts in Caroline, Dorchester, Somerset, Wicomico, and Worcester counties. The Maryland Department of Natural Resources will accept online entries until 11:59 p.m. on Aug. 25, 2020. “Hunting is a traditiona­l recreation­al use and a valuable part of our land management activities on Chesapeake Forest Lands,” Acting Maryland Forest Service Director Kenneth Jolly said. “We look forward to another successful year, offering this lottery opportunit­y to the hunting community in Mar yland.” The department advises entrants to visit the Chesapeake Forest tracts before making a selection, as some have limited access. Hunt clubs are expected to help maintain access roads, gates, and signs along the leased property, as is defined in the Maintenanc­e and Services Section of the Hunting Lease Agreement. Rules and guidelines for the lottery are as follows: Only hunt club members at least 18 years of age can participat­e in the lottery. A hunt club must have at least two members licensed to hunt in the state of Maryland, with one person designated as the club president. Each member may fill out a lottery form. Only one submittal per person will be placed in the lotter y. Each entrant can choose up to four tracts for the hunting lottery. The drawing will occur at 2 p.m. Aug. 26. Winning entries will be awarded the first available tract they choose. The Chesapeake Forest Lands include 187 management units totaling more than 75,376 acres in six lower Eastern Shore counties. The state purchased the lands to manage and protect them, and to expand opportunit­ies for public access to outdoor recreation­al opportunit­ies such as canoeing, birding, fishing, and hunting.
