Hunting permits available online Aug. 1

Hunting permits for the 2019-2020 season are now available online at the new Natural Resources permit sales website:

Pax River Natural Resources is issuing Hunting and Scouting permits via the website, and there are separate permits for NAS Patuxent River and Webster Field Annex.

Hunters are required to create a profile/account on the website, and can purchase all future permits from that account. Every individual needing a permit must create a profile – guests and dependents included. Sponsors can purchase permits for dependents and guests from their account, but will need the guest’s or dependent’s RAID profile number to complete the purchase.

Please check out the website for the Installation Hunting and Fishing Instructions. The Seasons and Bag Limits will be posted as soon as they are approved. Deer Archery season begins Sept. 6.

If you have any questions, call Natural Resources at 301 342 3670, or email or
