ANNAPOLIS —The Maryland Department of Natural Resources announces the state’s migratory Atlantic Population (AP) Canada goose hunting season will take place in two segments, Dec. 20, 2019 through Jan. 4, 2020 and Jan. 14, 2020 through Jan. 31, 2020. Hunters can bag one goose per day in Maryland’s AP Canada Goose Hunting Zone.

“Canada goose hunting is a time-honored Maryland tradition that gives friends and family a chance to reconnect as they enjoy the sights and sounds of a day in the field,” Wildlife and Heritage Service Director Paul Peditto said “We encourage all hunters to bring a new or novice hunter along on a trip to their waterfowl blind.”

More information about waterfowl seasons, regulations and license requirements, is available online.

Licenses, stamps, and permits may be purchased by phone at 855-855-3906, at a Department of Natural Resources Service Center or at any one of the more than 250 Sport License Agents statewide.

Hunters with questions may contact the Maryland Department of Natural Resources Wildlife and Heritage Service at 410-260-8540.
