Maryland Blind Site Licensing Dates Announced

The Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR) Wildlife
& Heritage Service announced today the waterfowl blind site
licensing schedule for Maryland waters. The initial phase of
licensing will take place August 2 at designated locations in each
county (see list below). On August 3 and thereafter, licensing will
take place only at the DNR Service Centers in Salisbury,
Centreville, Bel Air, and Prince Frederick and the Tawes Building
in Annapolis (see below for the counties that will be available at
these offices).

A 2010-2011 or 2011-2012 Maryland resident hunting license must
be presented in order to participate in the lottery drawing and
licensing process (except for landowners or people with the written
permission of a landowner who desire to license their own
property). All applicants must present their Maryland driver’s
license or other photo identification to prove residency and to
affirm they are the individual assigned to the required hunting
license. The 2011-2012 Maryland hunting license is now available at
any DNR sport license agent, online at www.wildlifelicense.com/md
or by phone at 1-800-918-2870.

Applicants should arrive at the designated location on August 2
between 7:30 a.m. and 8 a.m. to be processed. Individuals arriving
after 8 a.m. will not be eligible for the drawing and will have to
wait until all lottery applicants have completed their selection. A
lottery will be held at each location starting at approximately
8:30 a.m. on August 2. This drawing will determine the processing
order of applicants for that day. Once selected, applicants will be
limited to a maximum of eight minutes to select their blind sites;
no more than two sites per hunter may be selected per day.

Landowners wishing to license their own property should bring a
copy of the property information (available online at
http://sdatcert3.resiusa.org/rp_rewrite) and a tax map or other
legible map showing the exact location of the shoreline to be
licensed.

Licensing will end at 4:30 p.m. on August 2. Licensing will be open
10:30 a.m. – 4 p.m. on August 3 and 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
thereafter.

Preview maps of shoreline licensed by riparian landowners will be
available on July 15 at locations listed below. The maps will also
be available on DNR’s website at www.dnr.state.md.us/wildlife by
