Thanks Uncle Nicky. So as I read it, I need to show up 2 hrs prior to sunrise (deer firearm season) at the main gate/checking station for a lottery draw. Is that pretty much how it works?

Check this. Call the DE DNR, they will be best able to answer your questions all at one time.

Put your hat back on. Here is a new person who ask a reasonable question. You on the other hand were to lazy to read the digest that came with your license. I have little tolerance for lazy people. I have dealt with far too many of them. When you have ther answer in hand, it is stupid to ask someone else for it because they may be wrong.

Ladyhunter- I've only hunted private property in Delaware, but I think if you narrow it down to the public spot you have in mind and do a Google search, you should get your answer.

Unfortunately, something came up and I had to fly to GA to help out a friend, so I wasn't able to hunt the Nov. season. But I plan on participating in the January whitetail hunt. I am also going to apply to be a volunteer at the Prime Hook NWR on Monday! Thanks for the input.

There are Many good places to hunt in Delaware that are on Public Land. However you have to scout to find the hot spots, Delaware does not have a good archery Force so early season is great time to have your most success. I am up in New Castle County and mostly do my hunting up this way.
