Shotgun Season Starts for Deer Hunting

Posted: Updated:

SEAFORD, Del. - Shotgun season for hunting deer started today in Delaware. 

From November 11th to November 19th, hunters can use shotguns to hunt deer. Bonnie Messick, the owner of Messick Supply in Seaford says shotgun season is good for those who want to take their children hunting.

"Younger children can probably get a doe or a buck much easier than they can during archery or something like that, even muzzleloading," she said. "This is the big one because you take the younger hunters hunting"

Additionally, two of the five Sundays that people are allowed to hunt deer fall in the next week: the first is Sunday November 13th, the second is Sunday November 20th.

Messick says shotgun season is something every hunter looks forward to.

"If you like to hunt, there's nothing like it. It's exciting, you look forward to it, you can't wait for the season to start," she says. "You hope you get something, but if you don't you get out in nature. It's nice."

The next shotgun season in the current deer hunting season in Delaware runs from January 14th to the 21st.
