Legislative update

MDWFA Staffers attended DNR Wildlife and Heritage Concept meeting and these are the February 2020 bullet points of our recommendations:

  1. support of veterans & active duty military to hunt youth waterfowl days
  2. support proposed legislation for migratory game bird hunting on Sunday and gave written support of S.B. 238 Sunday Waterfowl Hunting submitted to Sponsor and Senate Committee.
  3. expansion of Offshore Zone in certain areas of the Bay
  4. Submission of Draft Regulation to define shooting waterfowl at rest on land and water
  5. opposed restriction of lay-out boats on Susquehanna Flats. MDWFA does not favor one legal form of hunting over another.
