Hearing: Maryland Bill to Expand Sunday Hunting in Talbot County

Maryland Delegate Johnny Mautz introduced legislation that will expand private land Sunday hunting opportunities in Talbot County. House Bill 325 would expand the number of Sunday’s you can hunt in the county with archery and with a firearm.

The bill will be heard on Wednesday, Feb. 17 at 1:30 p.m. in the House Environment and Transportation Committee. The hearing will be conducted on Zoom and can be watched here.

Take Action! Maryland members should contact their delegate and urge them to support House Bill 325 and all other Sunday hunting bills. Maryland members can find their legislators by using the Sportsmen’s Alliance Legislative Action Center.

Currently, you can only hunt deer for five Sundays of the archery season and two Sundays of the firearm season. This bill will allow private-land hunting every Sunday of the deer archery season and all four Sundays of the  deer firearm season in Talbot County.

“We appreciate Del. Mautz introducing this legislation to expand Sunday hunting opportunities for his constituents,” said Jacob Hupp associate director of state services at the Sportsmen’s Alliance. “Maryland sportsmen should welcome this opportunity to go afield on a traditional non-working day.”
