The Spring Turkey Hunting season began on April 18th. The 2017 General Assembly approved and the Governor Hogan recently signed legislation that permits turkey hunting on private land in Kent County on all remaining Sundays during the 2017 spring hunting season. The first is this Sunday, April 23rd and also on April 30th, May 7th, May 14th and May 21st, 2017.
“We are pleased to offer additional Sunday hunting opportunities for spring turkey hunters,” Wildlife and Heritage Service Director Paul Peditto said in a recent press release. “This will make it easier for hunters to find time to enjoy what the spring woods have to offer.”
Kent joins the list of other Maryland counties (Calvert, Caroline, Carroll, Charles and St. Mary’s) that permit Sunday hunting on private lands during the spring turkey season. Sunday turkey hunting is also permitted on private and designated public lands in Allegany, Garrett and Washington counties, and on all lands in Dorchester County.
