DNREC’s Hunter Education Program reminds hunters to have Delaware Hunter Safety Card when purchasing hunting license

DOVER – With Delaware’s November shotgun deer hunting season opening Friday, DNREC’s Division of Fish & Wildlife’s Hunter Education Program reminds hunters born on or after Jan. 1, 1967 that they need to have a Hunter Safety Card as proof of having taken a Basic Hunter Education Safety Course in order to purchase a Delaware hunting license, and also must carry the card while hunting.

Hunters who took their Delaware hunter safety course after 2008 and need a new copy of their Hunter Safety Card may go online to get it. Hunters should click on Hunter Education Access. The system will ask for their last name, date of birth and the last four digits of their Social Security Number. After entering their information, hunters will be able to print a new card.

Those who took their hunter safety course prior to 2008 should call the Hunter Education Office at 302-735-3600 ext. 1 to update their records so they can go online to print a new card.

In years past, hunters were required to provide their Hunter Safety Number when they purchased their first Delaware license. That number was then stored in licensing records and automatically pulled up when hunters purchased their next annual license. Due to a change in licensing software, hunter safety numbers are no longer automatically applied to future license purchases.

Delaware hunting licenses are sold online, at the licensing desk in DNREC’s Richardson & Robbins Building, 89 Kings Highway, Dover, DE 19901, and by license agents statewide. To find a participating agent, or to purchase a license online, visit Delaware Licenses. For additional information on Delaware hunting licenses, call 302-739-9918.

For more information on hunting in Delaware, click on 2017-2018 Delaware Hunting and Trapping Guide. The guide also is available in printed form at DNREC’s Dover licensing desk, and from license agents throughout the state.
