The 2009 – 2018 Maryland Deer Management Plan provides the foundation for all deer management activities and decisions until 2018. In addition to the plan, deer managers produce annual reports on Maryland deer (both white-tailed and sika) populations and their management. The 2012-2013 Maryland Annual Deer Report can be found here. In addition, an archive of past deer reports can be found on this page.
