Delaware law will only allow deer hunting on five Sundays this season
By David Alessandrini

With a recent change in Delaware law, deer hunting is now allowed on five specified Sundays beginning with the 2016/2017 hunting season.

Sunday deer hunting dates on private and public designated lands will be October 9, November 13 and 20, December 11 and January 15, 2017.

Under the law, Sunday deer hunting on these dates on private lands is allowed during regular hunting hours at the discretion of the landowner, while government agencies, including the Division of Fish and Wildlife, can designate public lands open for Sunday deer hunting on the dates listed above after seeking public comment.

Hunting is allowed during regular hours, one half-hour before sunrise until one half-hour after sunset.

DNREC now asks the public for comments on Sunday deer hunting locations and times on state wildlife areas.

Copies of the wildlife area maps where Sunday deer hunting is proposed and additional information can be requested by calling the Wildlife Section at 302-739-9912.

Written public comment can be mailed to Karen Kennedy, 89 Kings Highway, Dover, DE 19901. All written comments must be received no later than 4:30 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 26, 2016.
