Hunting The First State
Perfectly situated on the eastern seaboard between the Chesapeake Bay to the west and the Delaware River, Delaware Bay, and Atlantic Ocean to the east, Delaware has proven to be a hunting paradise for local sportsmen. For centuries, outdoorsmen and outdoorswomen have harvested the natural riches offered by the wild game that inhabit Delaware’s deciduous forests, salt and freshwater marshes, and cultivated crop fields. Common game, such as white-tailed deer, Canada geese, and varied species of ducks have been targeted by the majority of Delaware hunters, but woodcock, quail, snow geese, crows, squirrels, and rabbits are also plentiful in Delaware and provide Delaware sportsmen with hours of hunting enjoyment each season.

"From Brandywine Creek State Park and the backyards of Greenville in New Castle County through Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge in Kent County and Redden State Forest and Assawoman Wildlife Area in Sussex County, Delaware sportsmen have traversed marshy bottoms, endured swarming mosquitoes, braved poison ivy vines as thick as broom handles, and laughed in the face of pelting ice storms to pursue Delaware’s biggest hunting prize — the elusive white-tailed deer."
