Hunters With Disabilities

 


Click HERE to learn more!


A variety of hunting opportunities exist for disabled hunters in Delaware. State wildlife areas offer specialized blinds/stands and hunting locations to meet the needs of people with varying degrees of physical disabilities. Special permits (such as hunting from a vehicle permits) are also available in certain situations. Disabled hunters will be grouped into two categories.

Category 1 hunters are those whose disabilities confine them to a wheelchair for movement. Hunters in this group will be given priority for use of disabled facilities on state wildlife areas.

Category 2 hunters are those with other disabilities that do not allow them to use traditional hunting facilities and equipment. These hunters may be eligible for state stands/blinds and other special permits.
