Firearm deer season opens in Maryland

by  |  published on November 25, 2012

Opening day of the two-week firearm deer hunting season offered Chris Guay a chance for some peace and quiet and camaraderie with family.

Guay, of Jessup, took to the field Saturday with his father-in-law and wound up bagging a five-point buck.

It had been about four years since his last hunting excursion, he said, mostly because his free time has been taken up with his three young children.

“I like to get out in the woods and enjoy nature and try to outsmart the buggers,” he said, standing near his kill, about to be skinned and butchered at Rob’s Deer Shop.

Winds early in the morning were not ideal for deer hunting — the winds can frighten the animals — though conditions were better than he expected, Guay said.

According to the Maryland Department of Natural Resources, Frederick County has maintained the highest harvest of deer in the state for the past two seasons.

During the 2010-11 season, 7,942 deer were killed in Frederick County, the highest countywide figure for the state, according to the DNR.
