DNREC Releases 2014-2015 Hunting and Trapping Guide

Posted:

DOVER, Del. - The Delaware Hunting and Trapping Guide for the upcoming season is now available online and in print, the Delaware Division of Fish and Wildlife announced today.

This year's cover features the winning photograph in the Division's 2013 hunting photography contest, Patiently Waiting, by Jason Gary of Hartly.

The guide includes details on the newly-established coyote hunting and trapping seasons, changes to trapping regulations and deer tagging information, a summary of last season's deer harvest, a request for volunteers to participate in the Division of Fish and Wildlife's annual turkey brood survey and a new youth hunting section to help parents and young hunters prepare for the upcoming hunting season.

Season dates for the upcoming seasons are provided, as well as a summary of Delaware laws and regulations pertaining to legal harvest of game species.

As a reminder, Delaware residents ages 16 and up or younger than 65 and all non-residents 16 or older must purchase a hunting license to hunt in the state. A junior hunting license is required for 13-through-15-year-olds. Hunters ages 16 and up who are not license-exempt must purchase a state waterfowl stamp to hunt ducks or geese, and all waterfowl hunters ages 16 and up must purchase a federal duck stamp.

“Licenses may be purchased from more than 85 authorized license agents throughout the state, at the licensing office in DNREC's Richardson & Robbins Building, 89 Kings Highway, Dover, or by visiting us online at Delaware Licenses,” said Candace Dunning, the Division of Fish and Wildlife's recreational license program coordinator.

License-exempt hunters and trappers must obtain an annual, free License Exempt Number (LEN). Hunters who plan to pursue migratory game birds such as ducks, geese and doves, must register for an annual, free Harvest Information Program (HIP) number. LEN and HIP numbers can be obtained through the Division of Fish and Wildlife's Hunter and Trapper Registration System (HTR), which can also be used to register a deer harvest.

Wildlife Section Administrator Rob Hossler says anyone who uses the HTR system will be entered to win one of 20 donated Cabela's giftcards.

“We want to continue to offer these services for free, and if we can find ways to stretch our conservation dollars and also give some lucky folks the chance to win a donated Cabela's gift card, that is a win-win for everyone,” Hossler said.
