Note: The woodchuck and nutria are classified as “unprotected mammals.” As such, a hunting license is not required to hunt woodchucks and nutria except in Baltimore and Frederick Counties. Woodchucks and nutria may be hunted throughout the year, including on Sundays. Hunters must wear fluorescent orange while hunting woodchucks. All legal hunting devices may be used to hunt woodchucks and nutria. You have to buy a license to hunt an unprotected animal in only two counties ? Chaaa chingggg !!!!! You have to wear blaze orange to hunt ground hogs ??? ...... Uh who the heck was the brainiac that thought this up ?
