Delaware Bill Would Give Out-of-State College Students Break on Price for Hunting Licenses

Posted: Updated:

DELAWARE - The number of people with hunting licenses in Delaware has been declining for decades, but lawmakers are considering a change they think might slow that trend.

A new bill would give out-of-state college students who study full-time in Delaware a break on the price for hunting licenses in the First State.

Buying a license is not always cheap, and can cost you more than $150 if you live in Delaware. If you're not from Delaware, it can cost you more than $400 to hunt in the First State.

Rep. Jeff Spiegelman said the change could make a big difference in Delaware and is among the lawmakers supporting the legislation.

"The difference between an in-state license and an out-of-state license is often the difference between hunting and not hunting at all, so I'm happy to get more out-of-state people the in-state rate," said Rep. Spiegelman.

The legislation passed earlier this week in Delaware's House.

    On Thursday, OC Air Show pilots and their planes flew into the Wallops Flight Facility to begin practicing for the weekend events. 

    On Saturday and Sunday the beaches of Ocean City will be filled with people looking up at the planes overhead.

    The 12th annual event is expected to bring in thousands of people, so Dirato recommends getting to the 17th street area as early as possible to get a good spot.
