Deer hunters in Delaware don't need to look very far to find a place to hunt: Approximately 10 percent of land in Delaware is state-owned, and open for public hunting.
Delaware is divided into 18 Deer Management Zones, and within each zone there exist numerous public hunting opportunities. And while there may be a tendency to overlook the state for white-tail trophy potential due to its small geographic size, the number of quality bucks harvested per square mile in Delaware is comparable to the Midwest and other areas more often considered “prime” deer hunting regions.
To learn more about where the harvest is taken and the opportunities for deer hunters these charts and maps may be helpful:
