Persons possessing a valid Delaware resident hunting license may hunt snow geese in Maryland without purchasing a Maryland hunting license. In addition to a valid Delaware resident hunting license, these hunters must possess the Federal Migratory Bird Hunting and Conservation Stamp, a printed receipt from the purchase of a Maryland Migratory Game Bird Stamp, and comply with Maryland’s hunter safety requirements.

Similarly Maryland licensed hunters may hunt snow geese in Delaware without purchasing a Delaware Hunting license, but Maryland licensed hunters must also possess the Federal Migratory Bird Hunting and Conservation Stamp and obtain a Delaware H.I.P. permit. This permit is fee and can be obtained by calling 1-877- DELAHIP or go to  http://www.dehip.com to obtain a number through the Internet. When you call, you will receive your H.I.P. permit number over the phone. Once you have your number, you must write it on a piece of paper or your hunting license and have the H.I.P. permit number in your possession while hunting snow geese in Delaware.
