From the Director of the Division of Fish and Wildlife

When enjoying a day afield, it is easy to overlook what it takes to provide hunting and trapping opportunities. Financial investments by hunters and trappers have been the funding backbone that makes it possible for the Division of Fish & Wildlife to provide wildlife conservation and hunting products and services.

It may seem abstract to consider wildlife conservation and hunting opportunities as products and services. Diverse and viable wildlife populations and their habitats, a variety of hunting and trapping seasons, hunting access facilities on your public wildlife areas and hunter education requires money to produce, and are a few of the products and services we deliver to our customers.

Wildlife conservation and hunting products and services require funding, with hunters and trappers leading the way with the purchase of licenses, with those funds leveraged to bring in three-fold of federal funding derived from excise taxes on hunting and shooting equipment. This “user pay, user benefit” funding model of wildlife conservation also benefits the general public.

Decreasing funding from fewer license sales, mostly due to changing demographics and recreational interests, presents challenges in providing wildlife conservation and hunting products and services. We appreciate hunters and trappers continuing to lead the way in providing needed funding, while we also work to secure new funding from other wildlife conservationists.

On behalf of Delaware’s wildlife, the division thanks you for your financial investment in wildlife conservation and the hunting and trapping tradition.

I hope to see you in the great outdoors and wish you a memorable, safe and productive hunting and trapping season…

David E. Saveikis – Director
