Updated Delaware Hunting & Trapping Guide now available


DNREC’s Division of Fish & Wildlife announced this week that the 2018/2019 Delaware Hunting & Trapping Guide is available now at participating license agents throughout the state, at the Division of Fish & Wildlife’s licensing desk in the Richardson & Robbins Building located at 89 Kings Highway in Dover, and online.

This year’s cover features the winning photograph in this year’s Hunting Photography Contest, “At the End of the Day” by Angela Garcia of Smyrna, featuring Dominic and Paul Garcia duck hunting at Little Creek.

The guide lists season dates for the 2018/2019 hunting and trapping seasons, including migratory game bird seasons, as well as a summary of Delaware laws and regulations for legal harvest of game animals.

Readers can also find information on licensing/permit requirements, including the hunting and trapping license fee structure and information on the Conservation Access Pass for state wildlife areas. Hunting opportunities on public lands and listings hunting and trapping classes offered by the Division of Fish & Wildlife’s Hunter Education Program are also included in the guide.

Delaware hunting and trapping licenses and waterfowl stamps for the 2018/2019 seasons are on sale now. Most Delaware residents 16 or older and younger than 65, and non-residents 16 or older must purchase an adult license to hunt in Delaware. A resident or non-resident junior hunting license is required for hunters ages 13 through 15.

Hunting licenses and Delaware Waterfowl Stamps are sold online, at the licensing desk in DNREC’s Richardson & Robbins Building, 89 Kings Highway, Dover, and by license agents statewide. For additional information on Delaware hunting licenses, call (302) 739-9918.
