Delaware Grey Fox

** NTA Alert - Delaware Gray Fox **


Delaware Trappers are requesting that trappers nationwide submit

comments opposing the proposed regulation change that would require

all gray fox taken, killed or captured to be reported to the Division

of Fish and Wildlife within seven (7) days using its established

reporting system(s). The proposed 7 day requirement presents the same

concerns as next day reporting and should be opposed in favor of the

current end of year survey used by the Division.

Reporting within 7 days of gray fox incidental harvest is a burden to

trappers and will likely result in less accurate harvest reports than

the currently used survey report at the end of the season. Trappers

who forget to report a fox within 7 days will not report it due to

being afraid of breaking the law. The end of season survey will

satisfy the reporting requirement of the Department for gray fox,

increase reporting accuracy and not put undue burden on the already

dwindling trapping community.

You do not need to be a Delaware resident to submit public comments,

and all comments received will be considered equally. Due to the

amount of comments received In October, the Division was required to

revise the regulation and in order for this regulation to be stopped,

Delaware Trappers need your help once again.

Individuals may submit written comments regarding the proposed changes

via e-mail to [email protected] [1] or via the USPS to Lisa Vest,

Hearing Officer, DNREC, 89 Kings Highway, Dover, DE 19901 (302) 739-9042.

After February 1st, 2016 public comments will no longer be accepted.

Thanks in advance for anyone who takes the time to help a fellow trapper.
