ANNAPOLIS, Md. - Maryland wildlife managers are holding the first of two public meetings on a proposal to reduce the statewide bag limit for white-tailed bucks from nine to three.
The meeting is set for Tuesday night in Annapolis.
The proposal is part of a package of possible changes in hunting and trapping regulations that the Department of Natural Resources is putting out for public comment through March 15.
The DNR says hunters have told it the current limit for white-tailed bucks is too high. It says the proposal also would simplify hunting regulations.
Current regulations allow those who hunt with bows, muzzleloaders and modern firearms to kill up to two bucks during each of those seasons in the area east of Clear Spring, plus one per season in the area further west.
