Talbot County’s Got Game: A Hunting Guide

Our 600 miles of Eastern Shore coastline, preserved woodland forests, and open farmland create a welcoming habitat for large and small game. Whitetail deer is the big prize along with geese and duck, but turkey and other waterfowl are also plentiful. Talbot County’s hunting guides are ready to supply you with the necessary equipment and find you just the right spot to bag your prize. Most hotels and vacation rentals here are dog and hunter friendly, and we boast one of the most respected hunting supply stores in the country, Albright’s Gun Shop, to help you gear up for a day in the field.
