The Maryland Department of Natural Resources reminds riparian (waterfront) property owners who want to apply for offshore blind and shoreline licenses that applications must be postmarked before June 1.
Riparian property owners, or those with permission from the owner, may license a shoreline to establish stationary blinds or blind sites for hunting waterfowl, or to prevent others from licensing the site at a later date. License fees are $20 for one year or $60 for three years.
Landowners who miss the June 1 deadline may participate in the open licensing process beginning August 4.
