Recently, Sunday hunting legislation, House Substitute 1 for House Bill 289, was signed into law.
HB 289 will allow for the hunting of deer on the five individual Sundays that occur between the opening and closing dates of the October muzzleloader deer season, between the opening and closing dates in each of the November, December and January Shotgun deer seasons, and the Sunday at the end of the November Shotgun deer season. Sunday hunting will be allowed to occur on private lands at the discretion of the landowner and on public lands designated by the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC). DNREC will hold public hearings to discuss the lands designated to be open for Sunday hunting.
Thank you to those NRA members and Second Amendment supporters who contacted their lawmakers in support of this important pro-hunting legislation. Also, thank you to the bill sponsors and legislators who supported Sunday hunting legislation during the 2016 Legislative Session.
