!
The department is reminding recreational hunters and fishers that they must have a valid license and any required permits or stamps to hunt or fish in Maryland. Due to the pandemic and the temporary closure of DNR’s licensing centers, a grace period was in place for existing license holders whose recreational hunting and fishing licenses expired during the state of emergency. That grace period will end on January 1, 2021. Licenses, permits, and stamps can be obtained at Maryland Department of Natural Resources Licensing Centers by appointment only, by visiting a retail sport license agent or by using the department’s online COMPASS portal.

Purchasing a license is more convenient than ever before. This site will allow you quick and easy access to hunting and fishing licenses, regulations and other important information about outdoor recreation in Maryland..
