“Delaware’s state parks offer a wealth of recreational opportunities – including hunting and fishing,” said Author Steven M. Kendus. “I utilize the state parks year round, so I witness firsthand the number of visitors the parks receive.”
“Many of our state park locations have wonderful stores where tourists, hunters, and other park visitors can purchase Delaware-related merchandise, and I can’t think of a better place for Hunting The First State to be available,” Kendus continued.
Hunting The First State includes techniques, locations, tactics, and folklore from Kendus and some of Delaware’s most successful hunters and includes more than thirty-five photos of wildlife harvested in Delaware and the surrounding areas.
