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. Special permits (such as hunting from a vehicle permits) are also available in certain situations.
To obtain a Certified Hunter with Disabilities Card, complete the Hunters with Disabilities Application.
Approved non-ambulatory hunters may be permitted to hunt specified game animals from their vehicle. To obtain a permit to hunt from your vehicle, complete the Hunting From a Vehicle Application.
Hunters with disabilities are grouped into two categories.
Category 1 hunters are those whose disabilities confine them to a wheelchair for movement. Hunters in this group will be given priority for use of facilities for hunters with disabilities on state wildlife areas.
Category 2 hunters are those with other disabilities that do not allow them to use traditional hunting facilities and equipment. These hunters may be eligible for state stands/blinds and other special permits.
