Del. Fish & Wildlife recruiting more hunters

Delaware’s Division of Fish and Wildlife is going through a preliminary proposal to charge both hunters and non-hunters who use wildlife conservation and areas.

The proposal is in hopes of gaining more revenue to be used for area maintenance given the decline in licensed hunting; however, the Division of Fish And Wildlife says they have some ideas to recruit more hunters.

Currently, the agency holds hunter education courses throughout the year but they may expand their services by creating a hunter mentorship program. We’re told this would be open to both adults and children who either have never hunted before or haven’t done it in a while.

This program would require the help of civilian volunteers, according to agency director David Saveikis.

The are currently about 16,000 licensed in the state of Delaware.
