Elk Neck offers white-tailed deer hunting in bow, shotgun and muzzleloader seasons.

The park features five hunting areas:

  1. Carter Property (bow, shotgun and muzzleloader seasons)
  2. North East River Area (disabled hunting only using muzzleloader and shotgun)
  3. Rogues Harbor (bow only)
  4. Turkey Point (bow only)
  5. Campground Area (bow only)

All Hunters that plan to hunt at Elk Neck State Park will need to get their free Central Region Public Hunting Permit through the Gwynnbrook Wildlife Office (410-356-9272) instead of registering at the Elk Neck State Park office.
