The department is reminding recreational hunters and fishers
that they must have a valid license and any required permits or stamps to hunt
or fish in Maryland. Due to the pandemic and the temporary closure of DNR’s
licensing centers, a grace period was in place for existing license holders
whose recreational hunting and fishing licenses expired during the state of
emergency. That grace period will end on January 1, 2021. Licenses, permits,
and stamps can be obtained at Maryland Department of Natural Resources Licensing Centers by
