CAMBRIDGE, Md.– Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge will start processing all refuge hunting applications in October, impacting deadlines, according to officials.

Hunting applications, which are run by Friends of Blackwater, will continue handling the process until the end of September, officials said.

The NWR says changes will not impact prices for large game hunting, but will affect the deadlines of the applications. Deadlines for deer hunting are now due by Sept. 24. for the 2014-2015 year.

Big game hunting prices are as followed: $20 for archery, $10 per muzzleloader hunt, $10 for quota shotgun hunt, $20 for non-quota hunt and $5 for youth hunt day, according to officials.

Starting in October, the Department of Interior accounting office will handle all hunting fees, according to authorities. Of that money, the Blackwater NWR will receive 80 percent of the profits, which will go to access roads, print material and seasonal work in the hunting program.

For more information, contact Refuge Manager Suzanne Baird at (410) 228-2692.
