Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control | Division of Fish and Wildlife | Date Posted: Thursday, July 9, 2020

Harvests from two of Delaware’s most popular hunting seasons – deer and wild turkey – reflect continued conservation management by the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control in making the state a successful destination for deer and turkey hunters. A record 16,969 deer harvested for the 2019/20 hunting season helps move management of the deer population to a level that provides quality hunting opportunities while also reducing deer conflicts with humans. The 643 wild turkeys harvested during the spring turkey season from April 11 to May 9 and during the April 4 youth/non-ambulatory disabled hunt produced the fourth-highest recorded harvest for the state.
