HUNTING
DNREC announces new statutes for 2010 season
This fall hunters will be faced with a number of changes including a new crossbow season, a statewide red fox season, use of pellet firearms for squirrel hunting and licensing changes, announced July 14 by the DNREC Division of Fish and Wildlife. The changes were made following public review.
Starting this fall, crossbows may be used by all hunters during a general crossbow season that will run from Sept. 1 through Jan. 31, 2011. During any overlap with a deer gun season, crossbow hunters must wear 400 square inches of hunter orange as do gun hunters.
A new regulation establishes a statewide hunting season for red fox that will run from Nov. 1 through Feb. 28, 2011. Following the recent passage of a revised statute, the new season was created to allow the division to manage the species.
Two statutory changes taking effect this year involve licenses and hunting safety zones. Hunting licenses no longer need be displayed in a back tag but must be carried on the hunter’s person while hunting. The safety zone for hunting with archery devices, including crossbows, has been reduced to 50 yards. Gun hunting safety zones were not changed.
Another regulatory change is that hunters and trappers exempt from licensing due to age or property ownership will be required to obtain a hunter and trapper identification number. Like a license, this number must be carried by the hunter or trapper when in the field. To obtain this number, call 877-939-3678 toll free or visit www.dehip.com.
Squirrel hunters also will see a regulatory change with the addition of .17- through .22-caliber pellet firearms to the list of those allowed for hunting in Delaware. These guns must have rifled barrels.
For more information on these changes, consult the 2010 Delaware Hunting and Trapping Guide, call the DNREC Wildlife Section at 739-9912, or visit http//regulations.delaware.gov/register/july2010/final/index.shtml#TopOfPage and scroll down to the DNREC Division of Fish and Wildlife section to view the regulations.
