A Message from the Director

Hunting Regulations Icon Delaware Hunting

Over the years, I have addressed in this column numerous ways the Division of Fish & Wildlife works to improve and maximize your Delaware hunting and trapping experience. These services put your hunting and trapping license dollars to work by using science to manage sustainable wildlife populations, and by creating quality habitat on and providing access to your extensive public wildlife areas as well as delivering quality hunter and trapper education.

Our dedicated staff are an important and often overlooked part of delivering quality hunting and trapping and public wildlife areas for you. These individuals have a passion for wildlife biology, wildlife and habitat management, wildlife area stewardship and education that helps you spend quality time afield. They live and breathe wildlife, hunting and trapping, both professionally and personally. It is a way of life and in their DNA. The next time you have a successful hunt or otherwise enjoy a day hunting or trapping, take a moment to thank our staff.

The Division of Fish & Wildlife and its dedicated and passionate staff are committed to providing you quality hunting and trapping opportunities and experiences, as We Bring You Delaware’s Great Outdoors through Science and Service.

I encourage you to make the most of hunting and trapping opportunities in Delaware, whether you are local or from out of state. Have a successful, enjoyable and safe hunting and trapping season.

David E. Saveikis – Director
