The daily bag limit is one goose per day in Maryland’s AP Canada Goose Hunting Zone. The possession limit for all migratory game birds is three times the daily bag limit.  More information on waterfowl seasons, regulations, and license requirements is available on the DNR website

“Canada geese are one of Maryland’s most iconic game birds,” said Wildlife & Heritage Service Director Paul Peditto. “With the decoys out, retrievers at the ready, and birds calling overhead, a Maryland Canada goose hunt is a great way for an experienced hunter to introduce a novice to the excitement and tradition of waterfowl hunting.”

Licenses, stamps, and permits may be purchased online by phone at 855-855-3906, at a Department of Natural Resources Service Center, or at any one of the more than statewide.

Hunters with questions may contact the Maryland Department of Natural Resources Wildlife and Heritage Service at 410-260-8540.
