Well in maryland it is usually about the 2nd week of november. Usually only hunting allowed during this time is Bow and youth day.
Read your hunting guide for exact gun and bow hunting dates. or go here:

go to your MD hunting site, conservation or what ever. they will tell you all you need to know. or stop by wal-mart and pick up a brochure on hunting/fishing. good luck this year.

Default RE: Rut

harford county is in region B. I am assuming you are asking about that county.

Region B:
rifle or shotgun: you are allowed 10antlerless and 2antlered You must take 2 antlerless before taking 2nd antlered.
Muzzleloader: same as above 10 antlerless and 2 antlered

But check your dates in the guide or on website above. some days your only allowed to take antlerless deer.

Go to that site and on the left click hunting.

I think you should take a hunter safety course. Learn the basics of hunting and then come back and ask more inteligent questions... Iam not trying to be mean but sometimes the truth hurts!

Buy a bottle of doe heat.Take and open the bottle and just throw it all around your stand.Don't use small amounts like they say on tv.I never heard of a doe just drip when she pees. And you will draw in the bucks.It worked for me even after the rut.You still have a lot of horny deer out there even after.Try it and it works. And it is a sight when they come charging in with theire lips curled and ready to mount what ever moves.
