Default Important Maryland License question

My dad ownsabout20acres in Charles County and I read that if your parent owns property in Maryland then you do not need a license to hunt deer so long as it is on his property?? I am heading down in two weeks and want to make sure that this is correct?

Can anybody confirm this for me?

That is true as long as you hunt only on that property. When you go to check it in you will be asked if you are checking it under your sportsman license or as a landowner. If you check landowner then you will be asked for the zip codeof thatproperty and the last four digits of your SSN.

If you are hunting as a "landowner" then you don't need to purchase a license. If you plan on buying one anyway you can always do it online and print it out. It is effective immediately. Google DNR MD and you will find the Maryland DNR website where you can order a license online.

Looks like you mayneed a license anyway.

Who May Hunt Without a License
Note: Hunter Education and Safety Requirement applies to all individuals hunting in Maryland, even if they are exempt from the requirement to purchase a hunting license.
[*]
It is unlawful to hunt without a valid hunting license in your possession unless you are exempt from this requirement as described in this section. You are not required to possess a hunting license or stamps (except the Maryland Migratory Game Bird Stamp, the federal Migratory Bird Hunting and Conservation Stamp, and a Furbearer Permit) if you are:[*]
A resident of Maryland (and their spouse) who owns property and who hunts only on that property. This also applies to: (1) the landowner’s children and grandchildren if they are under the age of 16; and (2) the landowner’s children and grandchildren, and the spouse of the children or grandchildren, regardless of age, if the child, grandchild, or their spouse, lives on the property, has worked on the property for at least 30 days during the preceding 12 months, or manages the property. Each person must individually qualify under these criteria. To qualify for this exemption a landowner does not need to live on the property but must be able to prove ownership.[*]
A person (and spouse) who: (1) holds land under lease for agricultural purposes (or a sharecropper); and (2) lives on this farmland; and (3) hunts only on this farmland. This also applies to: (1) the lessee’s children and grandchildren if they are under the age of 16; and (2) the lessee’s children and grandchildren, and their spouses, if the child, grandchild, or spouse of the child or grandchild, lives on the property, has worked on the property for at least 30 days during the preceding 12 months, or manages the property.[*]
A nonresident (and spouse) who owns a contiguous piece of farmland that is in both Virginia and Maryland may hunt on the Maryland portion of his or her property without a Maryland hunting license, if the person’s primary residence is on the Virginia portion of the property. This also applies to the owner’s children and grandchildren if they are under the age of 16.[*]
A Maryland resident serving in the United States Armed Forces while on official leave in Maryland (whether stationed in Maryland or outside Maryland). You must possess a copy of official leave orders while hunting. See Hunters in the Armed Forces below.
