Hunting Legislation

Delegate Barbara Frush (D – Prince George’s County) introduced legislation that would extend the hunter safety zone from 150 to 300 yards. Many hunters have expressed concerns that it will prevent them from being able to hunt and point to the fact that Maryland recently expanded the hunter safety zone from 100 to 150 yards. A hearing will be held in the Environment Matters Committee on March 18, 2009 at 1pm.
