DOVER (April 1, 2015) – DNREC’s Division of Fish & Wildlife is now accepting applications from Delaware residents for its low-number hunting license lottery. The Division of Fish & Wildlife will conduct the lottery drawing for 15 available low-number Delaware hunting licenses with numbers under 1,000 at 9 a.m. Wednesday, June 3 in the auditorium at DNREC’s main office in the Richardson & Robbins Building in Dover.
Licenses will be awarded to the applicants whose names are drawn starting with the lowest and ending with the highest number available via a live drawing. The lottery is open to the public but successful applicants do not need to be present as they will be notified by phone or mail.

· The license is not transferable by the selected applicant to any individual.
· Individuals who currently hold a low-numbered license are not eligible.
· To be considered, an applicant must submit one and only one postcard, either by mail or hand-deliver it to the Richardson & Robbins building in Dover.
