Public Input Sought On Eastern Shore Hunting Areas

SNOW HILL, Md. (AP) — The Maryland Department of Natural Resources says it is seeking the public’s input on proposed changes to hunting areas in the Chesapeake Forests on the lower Eastern Shore.

The department says it is accepting public comments until Aug. 11 on the changes proposed for the 2012-2013 hunting season. DNR owns the Chesapeake Forests, which cover nearly 67,000 acres in six lower Eastern Shore counties. The proposed changes affect more than 7,800 acres.

The department says it is considering adjustments to several tracts to better accommodate public hunting as well as leases to groups, clubs and organizations.
