  • The Division of Fish and Wildlife and the Wildlife Turkey Federation are joining together to improve wild turkey habitat in Delaware.
    “We are working together to accomplish mutually beneficial wild turkey conservation goals, including public education, wildlife habitat management, and research projects and activities in Delaware,” said David Saveikis, director of the Division of Fish and Wildlife. “Wild turkey season attracts both resident and non-resident hunters to Delaware, supporting conservation and bringing economic benefits that bolster Delaware’s ‘Conservation Economy.’”
     
    Hunter education is an important component in the success and safety record of Delaware’s annual turkey season, added Thomas Spangler, president of the National Wild Turkey Federation's Delaware Chapter added. Delaware hunters must successfully complete a mandatory turkey hunter safety and education class before they can legally hunt wild turkeys in Delaware. Turkey hunters also are required to carry their Hunter Education Card, certifying successful completion of the course.
