Allegany County

Hunting in Allegany County is a much loved, traditional outdoor activity enjoyed by families and groups of friends–often times as an annual tradition. Deer, wild turkey, Canada goose, black bear, muskrat, and mink are all species permitted to be hunted during specified times during the Maryland hunting season. We are happy to welcome hunters to Mountain Maryland for a fun and safe season!

Western Maryland–home to many ponds and lakes, perfect for fishing and enjoying the mountain air, beautiful scenery, and wildlife—is an ideal vacation destination.
