DNREC Workshops to Get Public's Input on License Fees

DOVER, Del. – DNREC says it will hold public workshops to get input on proposed changes to hunting and trapping license fees.

Hunting license fee revenues have decreased in the past decade and program operating costs have increased, according to DNREC. That has resulted in the need to reduce various wildlife program operations and services.

Increased revenues from fee increases would be used to restore and possibly expand these wildlife program operations and services, DNREC officials said.

The last hunting license fee increase occurred in 2007, when some but not all hunting license fees were increased.

DNREC says each dollar of state hunting license revenue brings in an additional three dollars of federal funds to the state to support a variety of wildlife management and hunter access services.

Here are the scheduled workshops by county:

Kent County – 7 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 2 at DNREC's Richardson & Robbins Building Auditorium, 89 Kings Highway, Dover, DE 19901

Sussex County –  7 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 3 at Delaware Technical Community College, Jack F. Owens Campus, William Carter Partnership Center, Lecture Hall, 21179 College Drive, Georgetown, DE 19947

New Castle County – 7 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 4 at Ommelanden Hunter Education Training Center, 1205 River Road, New Castle, DE 19720
