DNR Activities During State of Emergency

https://news.maryland.gov/dnr/2020/0...-of-emergency/

Let's say a hunting license expired on 31Jul2020. The above link states that Governor Hogan issued an executive order related to licenses up for renewal during the state of emergency. The executive order immediately grants a grace period of 30 days after the date of termination of the state of emergency.

Does this mean that one doesn't need to renew until 30 days after the pandemic ends, and can still legally hunt for the 2020-2021 season? Asking for a friend.

I would think that is exactly what it means. I would think that the State would send out a notice just like they did with the park fees.


Since I'm retired, I'm happy to pay the $5 for my hunting and fishing licenses. I earned it.

Congrats, but I won't get to retire for (what seems like) another 100 years, so I wouldn't mind saving a buck or two this season!

I had to get a new fishing license. ordered it online and printed it out. they sent the official one about 2 weeks later. I would think hunting license would be similar.

All DNR issued licenses don't have to be on paper. Since last year, it is acceptable to have them on your cell phone. You have to carry a government issued ID with you though.

I understand it's all done online, and that's how I've only done it. I was just curious if the last season's license would remain valid according to the executive order.

I doubt it. DNR license’s can me renewed online, your DL not. I would not want to be the test case. Your time & dime though.

Here is the exact wording from DNR.

Grace period extended to all Maryland license holders

Governor Hogan has issued an executive order related to licenses, permits, registrations, and other authorizations that may be expiring or up for renewal during the state of emergency. The executive order immediately grants a grace period of 30 days after the date of termination of the state of emergency. This includes items processed at our Maryland Department of Natural Resources Licensing Service Centers

As I see it, you don't have to renew until 30 days after they declare the State of Emergency is over.

How about those that need a license stop by the sporting goods desk in Walmart and buy it? I bought my fishing license there recently and it was no different then any time.

It always amazes me the ability of people to create an issue out of nothing...

Lol. No one's creating an issue. I was mildly curious if that's the way the executive order read. As joker would ask: Why so serious?
