Waterfowl in Maryland

Welcome to Maryland Waterfowl Hunting

Maryland's history and tradition of waterfowl hunting is as rich as any in the nation. No article on the early days of waterfowling is complete without mention of the Chesapeake region and places such as the Susquehanna Flats. In fact, Maryland's General Assembly passed the first state law concerning waterfowl hunting in 1833.
