DNREC Once Again Attempting to Raise Hunting and Trapping License Fees

DNREC Once Again Attempting to Raise Hunting and Trapping License Fees

In January, the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC) will hold public workshops where it will again propose fee hikes on Delaware’s sportsmen. 

Last year, DNREC unsuccessfully asked the Advisory Council on Wildlife and Freshwater Fish to increase hunting fees.  Thanks to the outpouring of opposition from members of Delaware’s sportsmen community, the Advisory Council voted not to increase any license fees. As previously reported here, hunters have been and continue to be among the foremost supporters and funders of wildlife management and conservation in the United States.  Pricing hunters out of the field is disastrous for wildlife populations, the economy, conservation, agency funding and America’s hunting heritage.

It is important that Delaware hunters and sportsmen attend these public workshops and contact the Advisory Council on Wildlife and Freshwater Fish and tell them once again that you oppose any increase in hunting license fees without associated service increases.

Advisory Council on Wildlife and Freshwater Fish:
(302) 739-9912

Times and locations for those public workshops are below:

  • Sussex County –  7 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 12 at Delaware Technical Community College, Jack F. Owens Campus, William A. Carter Partnership Center Lecture Hall, 21179 College Drive, Georgetown, DE 19947
  • Kent County – 7 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 13 at Kent County Administrative Complex, 555 South Bay Road, Dover, DE 19901
  • New Castle County – 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 14 at Ommelanden Hunter Education Training Center, 1205 River Road, New Castle, DE 19720

Your NRA-ILA will continue to keep you updated on this issue as more information becomes available.
