Maryland landowners or agricultural lessees that are experiencing severe economic loss from deer to commercially grown crops (includes row crops, truck crops, pasture, nursery stock, orchards and certain tree plantings) may be eligible to receive a Deer Management Permit (DMP). DMP’s allow the permittee to remove deer from the designated property outside the established deer hunting seasons and/or deer bag limits. These permits are issued by the Wildlife and Heritage Service.
The staff person assigned to review your request for eligibility will consider the type, extent and severity of damage; time of year; and deer population levels for your locale when determining if a DMP is an appropriate solution for your property.
