Starting October 16, there will be a new public hunting opportunity available in Calvert County. The 206-acre Biscoe Gray Heritage Farm Cooperative Wildlife Management Area (CWMA), located in Prince Frederick, will be open to regulated deer and spring turkey hunting only. The site will follow the season dates and bag limits in the 2014-2015 Guide to Hunting and Trapping in Maryland.

To access the area, hunters must possess a seasonal permit and schedule a reservation in advance through the Myrtle Grove WMA office. Hunters must park in the designated parking area.
