1. AccessDNR Mobile App from Maryland’s Department of Natural Resources
This app for iPhones, iPads, and mobile devices is aimed at providing news, information, and photo sharing to hunters as well as to boaters, fishermen, park-goers, and other outdoor enthusiasts in Maryland. For hunters, key features include real-time game harvest reports; “Trophy Case” photo sharing through social media; an on-board hunting schedule; mobile licensing; and location-based access to sunrise/sunset data and maps of public parks, trails, and waterways.

2. Maryland Guide To Hunting & Trapping Website
If you find it easier to read hunting rules and schedules on a larger screen, grab your laptop and log on to the DNR’s Maryland Guide to Hunting & Trapping website. There, you’ll find full and detailed regulations for each species of bird and mammal which is legal to hunt or trap in the Old Line State.

3. OnXMaps Hunt App
Seasoned hunters will appreciate OnXMaps Hunt, an app available for smartphones, tablets, PCs, and Garmin GPS devices. Offered for Maryland and every other state, this location-based app include maps of hunting areas and trails, color-coded public lands, and private hunting lands that are open to the public. The app will even give you the names of landowners.

4. Hunter Ed Website
If you’re still tooling up your hunting skills, the Maryland page of the Hunter-Ed.com website lets you study from any location toward getting your Maryland hunter safety certificate, a document usually needed for obtaining a Maryland hunting license. While honing your classroom knowledge, you can take and pass a final qualifying exam to participate in the field day workshop that’s another part of the certification requirements. Topics covered in the online course include basic hunting and shooting skills, wildlife, firearms, safety and first aid, hunter responsibility and ethics, and more.
