Hunters with Disabilities

Delaware offers a variety of opportunities for hunters with disabilities.

State wildlife areas offer specialized blinds/stands and hunting locations for hunters with varying degrees of physical disability.

Facilities are provided for hunters with disabilities that confine them to a wheelchair as well as for hunters whose disabilities do not allow them to use traditional hunting facilities and equipment.
