Duck hunting continues to be an extremely popular sport in Maryland. Some waterfowl hunters hunt on public lands while others own land or can find a private land to lease for hunting ducks or other wild game.
Other hunting opportunities in Maryland are found by hunting clubs. These groups obtain hunting rights thru leases, land purchases or other means.
Hunting guides are another great asset for Maryland duck hunting enthusiasts. Hunting guides handle access issues, know the layout and are familiar with regulations and local hunting patterns.
Labrador retrievers and Chesapeake Bay retrievers are by far the two most popular hunting dogs used in the state. Each breed has historical significance in regional waterfowl hunting.
