DNREC Division of Fish & Wildlife to hold public workshops on proposed increases to hunting and trapping license fees
Monday, November 24, 2014

DNREC’s Division of Fish & Wildlife today announced a series of public workshops to share information and gather feedback regarding wildlife services and proposed changes to hunting and trapping license fees. Hunting license fee revenues have decreased in the past decade and program operating costs have increased, resulting in the need to reduce various wildlife program operations and services.

Increased revenues from fee increases would be used to restore and possibly expand these wildlife program operations and services, which are important for statewide management of wildlife species and for managing wildlife habitat and providing hunter access on state wildlife areas. The last hunting license fee increase occurred in 2007, when some but not all hunting license fees were increased. Each dollar of state hunting license revenue brings in an additional three dollars of federal funds to the state to support a variety of wildlife management and hunter access services.

One workshop is scheduled in each county as listed below:
Kent County – 7 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 2 at DNREC’s Richardson & Robbins Building Auditorium, 89 Kings Highway, Dover, DE 19901
Sussex County – 7 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 3 at Delaware Technical Community College, Jack F. Owens Campus, William Carter Partnership Center, Lecture Hall, 21179 College Drive, Georgetown, DE 19947
New Castle County – 7 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 4 at Ommelanden Hunter Education Training Center, 1205 River Road, New Castle, DE 19720

For additional information on the workshops, please contact the Wildlife Section at 302-739-9912.
