The Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control’s Division of Fish & Wildlife announced that the Sunday deer hunting opportunities for the 2016-17 hunting season are Oct. 9, Nov. 13, Nov. 20, Dec. 11 and Jan. 15, 2017.

This is based on a recent change in state law that allows Sunday deer hunting in Delaware. The new law allows only for hunting deer Sunday, no other game, with deer hunting to be allowed on selected public lands. Sunday deer hunting also is allowed on private lands in Delaware on the same dates, with landowner permission required.
