I wondering about the license. MD DNR says $140 for Reciprocal license with VA. But I can find nothing on the VA DNR site about a MD reciprocal license.

You would at least think they would say they accept it. When I search VA DNR for "reciprocal" all I get is fishing.

Most of my hunting will be in MD since that is where I am from and all my spots are...and where my hunting buddy is and my parents house AKA the hunting lodge is. An out of state license is $130....but the reciprocal is $140. So I might as well spend the extra $10 in case I go in VA. But VA says nothing about it.

Anyone get the MD reciprocal license?????

I've never heard of any reciprocal license agreement with any state.

Of MD DNR web site.

Full Season Hunting License
Allows you to hunt or trap all legal game birds and mammals in season without the need for additional stamps, except: (1) deer during bow season; (2) deer during muzzleloader season; and (3) migratory game birds. A Bonus Antlered Deer Stamp may also be used with these licenses.

Resident Regular Hunting License...$24.50
(Age 16 to 64)

Resident Junior Hunting License...$10.50
(Under 16 years of age, written permission from parent or guardian required)

Resident Senior Hunting License...$5.00
(Age 65 and above, may purchase in the calendar year in which a resident attains the age of 65.)

Holders of Senior Lifetime Consolidated Licenses
This license type has been eliminated, but persons who already have this license are “grandfathered” and do not need to purchase the Senior Hunting License, Bow or Muzzleloader Stamps. However, they must buy a Bonus Antlered Deer Stamp to hunt a bonus antlered deer or a Maryland Migratory Game Bird Stamp to hunt migratory game birds.

Nonresident Hunting License...$130.00 or reciprocal
(Nonresidents of Maryland must present a valid driver’s license or voter’s card, or resident hunting license to establish residency. Nonresidents under the age of 16 must also have written permission from a parent or legal guardian.)

And what I am asking is if anyone has got it before. Because I can't find anythging about it on the VA DNR website. Which worries me. Cause MD and VA don't have the best communication skills with eachother.

The cost is $130 or they will reciprocate the non-resident fees of the state you're coming from. Hence, VA residents pay more for an out of state MD license because that is what VA charges MD residents to hunt here.

Nope. The reciprocal part is not in regards to hunting rights. It is in regard to the fees.

If you want to hunt in both states, you have to have licenses for both.
If you have MD driver's license, MD would be your home state.
Then you would need to get an out-of-state for VA.
