The Maryland Department of Natural Resources invites all hunters — including junior, apprentice, and lapsed hunters — to apply to participate in this year’s stocked pheasant hunts, which take place November 23-24.

Space is limited at each area to assure a quality experience. All interested hunters must have a DNR ID number and valid Maryland hunting license, and must apply to participate using an online application form. The application deadline is Oct. 18. Participants will be chosen at random via lottery.

These do-it-yourself hunts will take place on nine wildlife management areas across the state and two state forests in western Maryland. This is the second year the department is stocking pheasants.
