Delaware’s last hunting license fee increase occurred in 2007. Most DNREC wildlife programs are primarily funded through federal grants that match $3 for every dollar of state funds from hunting and trapping license fee revenue.
Delaware hunting and trapping licenses are sold online, at the licensing desk in DNREC’s Richardson & Robbins Building, 89 Kings Highway, Dover, and by license agents statewide. To find a participating agent, or to purchase a license online, visit bit.ly/20myTRi.
