DOVER (Aug. 23, 2016) – With a recent change in Delaware law, deer hunting is allowed on five specified Sundays on private lands and on designated public lands beginning with the 2016/2017 hunting season, DNREC’s Division of Fish & Wildlife announced today. Sunday deer hunting dates for the upcoming season will be Oct. 9, Nov. 13 and 20, Dec. 11 this year, and Jan. 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 & Wildlife, can designate public lands open for Sunday deer hunting on the dates listed above after seeking public comment.
