Del. Sets Waterfowl Hunting for Kids, Disabled

Posted:

DOVER, Del.- The state of Delaware has designated a special waterfowl hunting day for children and non-ambulatory disabled hunters.

Youth hunters are required to be accompanied by a licensed or exempt adult hunter age 21 or older, and must be of sufficient physical size and strength to safely handle a firearm. Youth hunters age 13 through 15 must have completed a hunter education course, possess a certification card and purchase a Delaware junior hunting license.

Licenses can be purchased from the Division of Fish and Wildlife's licensing desk at the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control's main office in Dover, from license dealers throughout the state, or online at Licenses. To promote youth hunting, DNREC is waiving waterfowl blind fees for youth hunting on state wildlife areas on youth hunting days.

Normal limits and duck hunting regulations apply. Standard daily duck bag limits apply, with hunters also permitted to harvest snow geese and Canada geese. No state or federal waterfowl/duck stamps are required.

On state wildlife areas, a lottery drawing for waterfowl blinds will be held 1.5 hours before legal shooting time, except for Little Creek Wildlife Management Area which holds its drawing two hours before legal shooting time. Hunters should plan to arrive two hours before legal shooting time to sign up for the lottery. Hunters should check each wildlife area's rules before hunting.  

For more information, including daily limits and possession limits, check the 2012-2013 Delaware Hunting and Trapping Guide, available at hunting license dealers statewide or online at www.dnrec.delaware.gov/fw, and the 2012-2013 Delaware Migratory Bird Season Summary at Waterfowl summary .

Specialized blinds and hunting locations as well as special hunting permits also are available for disabled hunters. For more information, call (302) 739-9912.
