Print, online versions of new hunting maps for state wildlife areas available now for 2015/2016 seasons
DOVER (Sept. 25, 2015) – New state wildlife area maps with updated regulations for each area are now available for the 2015/2016 hunting seasons, DNREC’s Division of Fish & Wildlife announced today. The maps and area-specific regulations are also available online at Delaware Hunting Maps.
Hunters should note that two wildlife areas have been renamed since last year. The Blackbird Reserve Wildlife Area in New Castle County is now the Eagles Nest Wildlife Area, and the Urban/Fortney Tracts in Kent County have been combined to form the new Tappahanna Wildlife Area. These new names are indicated on the area maps, but are not reflected in the 2015-2016 Delaware Hunting and Trapping Guide as it was published prior to the name changes.
For complete information on the 2015/2016 hunting seasons – including hunter education, licensing, hunting and trapping seasons, limits, regulations, wildlife area information and more, with sections devoted to deer, small game, turkey and migratory birds – check this year’s hunting and trapping guide by clicking on 2015-2016 Delaware Hunting and Trapping Guide.
The guide is available in printed form at DNREC’s Dover licensing office in the Richardson & Robbins Building, 89 Kings Highway, Dover, and from license agents throughout the state. Printed wildlife area maps also are available at the Dover licensing desk. Licensing desk customers may take up to five printed maps of individual wildlife areas free of charge. A complete set of statewide maps costs $5 to purchase at the licensing desk, or $6 by mail.
For more information, please call DNREC’s licensing office at 302-739-9918 or the Wildlife Section office at 302-739-9912.
